what does it mean when a doctor's notes describe something as being "remarkable" or "unremarkable"?
for example comments on results from tests performed and/or physical examination

Answer King
Was it when he asked you to cough?

Remarkable means there is evidence that there is evidence that something exists. Unremarkable means that there is no evidence that something exists. These relate to abnormalities in tests performed or examinations.

Jeez, ever heard of the saying that, for the newspapers, bad news is "good news"?

"remarkable" must be bad and "unremarkable" must be good there.

It is the comment which a pathologist has to put on the report card of some test.
Like for sputum test, presence of bacteria, for say TB, the pathologist has to put down Remarkable if they are present in significant number.

Remarkable means that there is something 'significant' - for example, if they saw a mass on an x-ray, they might say that it was remarkable for...

If the tests are normal, they are unremarkable.

Good luck


Remarkable: We may need to look more closely at this

Unremarkable: Don't worry about it... it doesn't matter

That it has direct bearing on diagnosis and treatment.

I understand exactly where this question is coming from.... I remember sitting in the ICU with my infant daughter when the pulmonary specialist told me that her CT was quite remarkable. I thought, "Okay, remarkable is good." But no... thankfully, he saw that I wasn't quite understanding and went on to elaborate. And from everything else that was said, I learned very quickly that when a doctor says it, remarkable is bad. Quite remarkable is very very bad. Unremarkable is good. The same is true for the word impressive. Best of luck.

It literally means whether something rates being remarked about or not. Often doctors who review films will write that something is unremarkable, so that it is clear to your doctor that there is no concern. If something is remarkable, then there will follow clarifying remarks. It's not like common usage, when we use remarkable instead of fantastic, outstanding, or unbelievable.
