AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2010 Aug;195(2):281-9. doi: 10.2214/AJR.09.4110.


Objective: The objectives of this article are to review the new Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) guideline, version 1.1, highlighting the major changes in the new version compared with the original RECIST guideline (version 1.0), and to present case examples with representative imaging.

Conclusion: Familiarity with the revised RECIST is essential in day-to-day oncologic imaging practice to provide up-to-date service to oncologists and their patients. Some of the changes in the revised RECIST affect how radiologists select, measure, and report target lesions.
