Management implications and outcomes of LI-RADS-2, -3, -4, and -M category observations.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

A radiologist issuing a LI-RADS category is, implicitly or explicitly, a member of a multidisciplinary team. If the definite diagnosis of a benign or malignant entity is not possible, categorizing the uncertainty as LR-2, -3, -4, or -M has important management implications. In this article, we discuss the range of options for management or further diagnostic testing and how a LR category may affect the choice between them. We then review recent published data regarding eventual diagnoses following assignment of a LR category.
