Readability of informed consent forms for use with iodinated contrast media.
Informed consent forms used before intravenous administration of contrast media by both private practice (Pennsylvania Blue Shield) and academic (Association of University Radiologists) physician groups were analyzed to evaluate for readability and content.
Most of the 160 consent forms required at least a high school education to be understood; 10 (6%) required a college education.
Consent forms from academic institutions tended to be longer and contain more problems with sentence structure than those from private practice.
Consent forms from both groups tended to have a weak, wordy writing style.
