Method to retrieve Report Description from Service

Good afternoon,

I'm looking for a method to grab the Description of a report to populate a table to describe reports that users can request access to.

Does anyone know if this is possible?  I've gone through the "Get Reports" API call, but it doesn't pull the report description, only report name.  I am not aware of any other API calls that may or may not work.

 

Thanks
