Since 1993, Reporting and Data Systems (RADS), firstly proposed by the American College of Radiology, have proliferated as a standardized methodology for reporting on imaging findings. Among others, RADS apply to findings in MRI and are meant to reduce the variability in diagnostic reports, to facilitate communication in radiology and to provide a framework for clinical decision and patient management.

Despite the effort that has been done, only few have been implemented into clinical practice while the most are not yet generally used or their impact have been underestimated without any documented evidence on efficacy and efficiency in the MRI workflow.

The implementation of RADS requires standard terminology, probability-based diagnostic approach, image assessment finalized to categorization, structured reporting.

In addition, the fast evolving world of MRI and its nature as a multiparametric modality require constant monitoring of RADS and eventually adaptations for accuracy improvement.


Target Audience

Radiologists, Fellows, Residents who are interested in structured reporting in MRI, Clinical oncologists and Radiology Directors and Mentors who want to discover the full potential of available RADS scoring systems in MRI as well as their limitations and implement RADS scoring systems in their institutions for diagnosis and patient management.


As a result of attending the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the state-of-the-art of all currently available RADS in MRI
  • Discover the purpose of the developed MRI RADS and how it affects clinical decision
  • Interact with referring clinicians on challenging cases and uncertainty
  • Discuss on image interpretation and error mitigation approaches
  • Integrate the RADS in the standard MRI reports
  • Recognize the opportunities as well as the limitations and challenges of scoring systems


Course Description

The live training course is organized to allow leaders who have long-time experience in the use of the specific RADS scoring system to give a 30 minute training lecture on background and description followed by 60 minutes of definite and conflictual interactive cases. A total of 11 hours of interactive cases is planned through the whole course.


EACCME® credits

The The MRI interactive course of -RADS from head to toe, Girona, Spain, 03/11/2022-04/11/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 13 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
