About BI-RADS®

The American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS®) is a quality assurance tool designed to standardize mammography reporting, reducing confusion in breast imaging interpretations and facilitate outcome monitoring.  BI-RADS® provides a lexicon of standardized terminology, a reporting organization, a coding system and a data collection structure.  Results are communicated to the referring physician in a clear fashion with a final assessment that indicates a final course of action.   Results are compiled in a standardized manner that permits the maintenance and collection analysis of demographic, mammographic and outcome data.  Through a medical audit and outcome monitoring, the system provides important peer review and quality assurance data to improve the quality of patient care.
