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 patient who had a contrast-enhanced CTA of the skull base and neck to evaluate the vertebral arteries prior to intervention for right atlantoaxial joint pain. Apply coding techniques in the case of a 37-year-old male with a diagnosis of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is referred for follow-up quantitative magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (QMRCP). Previous QMRCP scans did not provide evidence to suggest the presence of a dominant or high-grade stricture within the biliary tree. In the documentation challenge, identify the proper codes to report for a 70-year-old male with a history of elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) for which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvis with special attention to the prostate was performed. The radiology test case in this issue highlights the performance of quantitative ultrasound tissue characterization of the thyroid for a patient with normal thyroid function labs and a palpable finding in the thyroid isthmus. Dive deeper into these cases and challenge your coding skills with the Summer 2022 issue of Clinical Examples in Radiology.
