Scenario: 12-13-2018 MR Abdomen: Lesion Segment IVb- 1.5cm LI-RADS 5 (Definite HCC)
Question: Is this case reportable?
Rationale: Refer to SEER Appendix E Reportable and Non-Reportable Examples https://seer.cancer.gov/manuals/2018/SPCSM_2018_AppendixE.pdf
“Liver cases with an LI-RADS category LR-5 or LR-5V are reportable. Use the date of the LR-5 or LR-5V scan as the date of diagnosis when it is the earliest confirmation of the malignancy. Do not report cases based only on an LI-RADS category of LR-4.”
Discussion: If you are not abstracting for a SEER State, please refer to your State Central Registry for guidance.
