"Incidentalomas" are a common part of daily practice for radiologists, and knowledge of appropriate management guidelines is important in ensuring that no potentially clinically relevant findings are missed or are lost to follow-up in asymptomatic patients. Incidental findings of the brain, spine, thyroid, lungs, breasts, liver, adrenals, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, bowel, and ovaries are discussed, including where to find guidelines for management recommendations, how to follow them, and medical-legal considerations.
