Digital Edition of ACR BI-RADS Atlas, Now Available

September 18, 2014 — The fifth edition of the American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) Atlas is now available in a convenient electronic format. The digital (e-book) version can be downloaded to a tablet, laptop or desktop, and accessed on up to five devices.

“The launch of this digital edition is a significant enhancement to the breast imaging resources the College provides to radiologists and other allied health care providers,” said Carl J. D’Orsi, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Committee on BI-RADS. “Providers can now download this valuable quality assurance tool onto their mobile device or desktop computer, making BI-RADS conveniently portable and easy to search.”

BI-RADS was created to standardize the way breast-imaging results were reported and improve patient care. This fifth edition includes more than 700 clinical images, a new section on follow-up and outcome monitoring, and updated descriptors for breast composition, elasticity assessment and implant assessment in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The fifth edition of BI-RADS is the culmination of years of collaborative efforts from the ACR BI-RADS Committee and Subcommittee members.

Special institutional and member pricing is available for the e-book.
