LI-RADS: A Quick Reference Card

We took a hiatus from Tools of the Trade for a bit, but we’re back with another infographic. 

In 2008, the American College of Radiology (ACR) created the Liver Imaging and Data Reporting System (LI-RADS) committee, to standardize the terminology and reporting of lesions seen on imaging in the population of patients at risk for hepatocellular carcinoma. The LI-RADS criteria have been updated and modified many times. We as hepatologists refer to these criteria frequently, though admittedly the terminology is sometimes difficult to remember.

I distilled down as much high-yield LI-RADS information as I could  into the below reference card. Of course, this is not meant to be 100% comprehensive. For a complete reference, here are the links to the ACR’s documents:
