5-tier ACR system of radiologic breast findings
The 5-tier ACR system was a previously used system for classification of radiologic breast findings, proposed by the American College of Radiology (ACR). It is no longer in widespread use, having been gradually superseded by the 6-tier BI-RADS classification system first published in 1992. Interestingly, despite its name, it was actually a 6-tier system!
