Managing Incidental Findings on Abdominal CT: White Paper of the ACR Incidental Findings Committee

This white paper aims to describe the criteria needed to detect, report and manage incidental findings, such as masses in the abdomen.

The aim of the report is to develop a consensus on sets of organ-specific imaging features for some commonly affected organ systems within the abdomen, to develop medical approaches to managing incidental findings that are diagnostically indeterminate and address differences between unenhanced, low-radiation dose CT examinations and contrast-enhanced CT examinations using standard radiation doses for detecting and managing incidental findings.

It it hoped the guidelines will help reduce risks to patients from unnecessary additional examinations and limit the costs of managing incidental findings.
