The American College of Radiology (ACR)–endorsed Reporting and Data Systems (RADS) are guidelines for the evaluation and interpretation of disease-oriented imaging studies. Each system is devised by a group of experts in consensus and may be periodically updated to improve diagnostic parameters. Standardized reporting is preferred by referring physicians because it minimizes reporting variations and ambiguous terminology. Furthermore, the systematic nature of the ACR RADS allows consistent data collection. These qualities are critical for facilitating outcomes monitoring and for postadoption refinements and quality assurance.
