RESTON, VA — The American College of Radiology (ACR) refined its standardized system for liver cancer screening and surveillance ultrasound imaging exams. These changes can help improve communication with referring clinicians and raise the quality of patient care, education and research.

“The new version of the Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) highlights technique, interpretation, reporting and data collection for screening and surveillance in patients for detecting liver cancer early, when it is potentially curable, by screening at-risk patients,” said Claude B. Sirlin, MD, chair of the ACR Committee on LI-RADS. “We continually strive to improve LI-RADS to enhance communication with referring clinicians, speed accurate diagnosis and improve patient care,” he said.
