BI-RADS® for Mammography
The Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS®) was developed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) to serve as a guide providing standarized breast imaging terminology, a recommended reporting structure including final assessment categories with accompanying management recommendations, and a framework for data collection and auditing. Subsequent validation showed that implementation of BI-RADS® reduces inter and intraobserver variability. The first edition was released in 1993 for Mammography findings, since then more editions have been released. In 2003 the first edition of the Ultrasound (US) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) BI-RADS® Atlas was published.
BI-RADS® for Mammography was designed to standardize breast imaging reporting and to reduce confusion in breast imaging interpretations. It also facilitates outcome monitoring and quality assessment.
BLUEBERRY DIAGNOSTICS has implemented ―for training or educational purposes―, the last versions of BI-RADS® for Mammography for Brest Cancer screening and detection. BI-RADS® for Mammography is based on the lexicon for standardized terminology (descriptors) for Mammography, as well as the chapters on Report Organization and Guidance Chapters for use in daily practice. Use is free of charge and not limited.
Once entered the patient data, our BI-RADS® for Mammography, presents the results as a PDF document, that can be downloaded or sent by email.
