Abstract

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 32-year-old male patient with an upper lobe avid lung mass. Apply coding techniques in the case of a 72-year-old male with left otitis externa referred for evaluation of possible infection at the skull base for whom radiopharmaceutical Indium-111 Oxyquinoline (oxine)–labeled white blood cells are administered intravenously, followed by delayed planar imaging of the whole body. In the documentation challenge, identify the proper codes to report for a follow-up visit for a 62-year-old female for peak skin dose calculation, along with evaluation for adverse patient effects following an interventional radiology procedure. The radiology test in this issue highlights the case of a 65-year-old female who presents with a complaint of chronic painful headache due to occipital neuralgia. Dive deeper into these cases and challenge your coding skills with the Fall 2020 issue of Clinical Examples in Radiology.
