Jennifer Bash,RHIA, RCC, CPC, CIRCC and Debby Mann, RCC, CPC, ROCC
This is a hands-on workshop that utilizes real-life cases to identify key documentation points for code selection then participants will discuss and compare strategies for problem cases. Both diagnostic and interventional radiology will be covered in this day-long hands-on workshop. The first half of the day will be dedicated to imaging modalities, including diagnostic x-ray, breast imaging, CT/MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine. Then, in the afternoon we will shift to interventional procedures, including non-vascular and vascular diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Participants will walk away with experiential knowledge from their peers and instructor.
- Review the coding guidelines for radiology and IR procedures
- Identify the key dictation points required to support the assigned codes
- Apply practical knowledge to sample reports to improve understanding
