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 learn how to code in the case of a female patient with left breast cancer. A baseline evaluation is performed prior to chemotherapy. Apply coding techniques in the case of a 78-year-old female with dysphagia to pills and food for whom scout radiographic images of the chest and upper abdomen were performed. In the Documentation Challenge, identify the proper codes to report magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis and computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis for a 37-year-old male patient with painless gross hematuria. The radiology test in this issue highlights a case of a 56-year-old male with small bowel obstruction and progressive abdominal distension. Dive deeper into these cases and challenge your coding skills with the Summer 2020 issue of Clinical Examples in Radiology.
