Clinical Examples in Radiology (CER) online 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 a patient with end-stage renal disease who has a procedure performed for preoperative mapping prior to surgical creation of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) for dialysis access; 2) Apply coding techniques in the case of a 50-year-old male referred for bone core biopsy of a left seventh rib lesion; 3) In the Documentation Challenge, identify the proper codes to report a computed tomography (CT) of the thorax without contrast performed on a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia; and 4) The radiology test in this issue highlights a case of bilateral breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed on a high-risk breast cancer patient. Dive deeper into these cases and challenge your coding skills with the Winter 2020 issue of Clinical Examples in Radiology.
The CPT® code set is more than a terminology. It is a system for reimbursement, an enabler of research, a tool for reducing administrative burden and it is a method of accelerating medical innovation.
