Abstract

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 a 66-year-old patient who presents with hypotension and computerized tomography (CT) evidence of a right retroperitoneal hemorrhage following liver biopsy; 2) apply coding techniques in the case of a 53-year-old female with a mandibular tumor presented for resection of the tumor and mandibular reconstruction; 3) in the documentation challenge, identify the proper codes and procedures when a uterine single gestational sac contains a single live embryo with an embryonic heart rate of 166 bpm, normal amniotic fluid volume, but no visible placenta; and 4) take the radiology test in this issue which highlights a case of osteopenia of the lumbar spine with increased fracture risk and osteoporosis found in the distal left forearm. Dive deeper into these cases and challenge your coding skills with the Spring 2019 issue of Clinical Examples in Radiology.
