Clinical Examples in Radiology (CER) online subscription newsletter is provided for coding professionals to test their knowledge based on review of relevant modern case studies. In this issue: 1) learn how to code in the case of an 81-year-old male with a fusiform aneurysm arising from the gastroduodenal artery identified on recent computed tomographic angiography; 2) apply coding techniques in the case of a 52-year-old male with swelling and pain of the left foot and heel; 3) in the Documentation Challenge, identify the proper codes and procedures to report fluoroscopy-guided lumbar puncture for intrathecal administration of medication; and 4) take the radiology test in this issue which highlights fluoroscopy-guided injection and computed tomography (CT) shoulder arthrogram in a patient with history of rotator cuff repair (type IB) and limited range of movement. Dive deeper into these cases and challenge your coding skills with the Summer 2018 issue of Clinical Examples in Radiology.
