Diagnostic Radiology Coding Basics, Questions

Got Coding Questions?

 

First things first, the medical coding world is tough right now. I don’t have exact numbers, but many coders in all different specialties are furloughed or laid off due to Covid-19. I’d like to think that most of us will get our jobs back, but that’s not really what this post is about. Make a long story short, I think now is a good time to either brush up on coding, or learn something new, and I’d like to help other coders do that. So, if you have coding questions related to ICD-10-CM or the radiology section of the CPT book–please feel free to send me the questions and I’ll answer them in the next blog post!

Coding CPT questions can be about:

x-rays

ultrasounds

duplex

mammograms

MRI’s

MRA’s

CT scans

CTA’s

ICD-10-CM codes commonly used in radiology–such as fracture codes, injury codes, pain, screening codes etc.

Common modifiers used–such as 59, X modifiers 76 etc.
