Released July 2018 – LI-RADS version 2018 provides updated criteria for small (10-19 mm) LR-5 observations and a simplified definition for threshold growth. These updates represent a critical milestone by achieving consistency with and integration into the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) 2018 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) clinical practice guidance.

Although our intended update cycle is every 3 to 4 years, the recent unification of LI-RADS with AASLD necessitated the expedited release of version 2018.
