The Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS®) is an imaging-based diagnostic system applicable in patients at high risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In LI-RADS, each liver observation is assigned a category that reflects probability of benignity, HCC, or other malignancy. Familiarity with the LI-RADS diagnostic algorithm is necessary to appropriately implement LI-RADS in clinical practice. This review discusses steps necessary for application of the LI-RADS algorithm and provides examples illustrating each step.
