ACR CEUS LI-RADS 2016

ACR CEUS LI-RADS was developed by a working group of national and international experts chaired by Dr. Yuko Kono, MD, of the University of California, San Diego. Members include radiologists and hepatologists from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Beta versions of the CEUS LI-RADS algorithm were presented at national and international conferences in 2015 and 2016. Feedback was solicited. Based on the feedback and iterative consensus, the working group refined and in 5-21-16 finalized the CEUS LI-RADS algorithm. The algorithm was officially approved by the ACR LI-RADS Steering Committee on 6-24-16 and submitted to the ACR for public release on 6-24-16.
