Fully updated for 2019!
Developed by ZHealth Publishing, the industry leader in interventional radiology coding, this series of two webinars offers a comprehensive curriculum on Non-Vascular Interventional procedures.
Part 1: Covers CPT coding of genitourinary, biliary, and gastrointestinal procedures. Procedures covered include: diagnostic cholangiography and nephrostogram; biliary and nephrostomy drainage tube placement, replacement, and removal; and percutaneous gastrointestinal procedures. In addition, other procedures performed percutaneously such as stone removal, dilation, and conversion are discussed.
Part 2: Covers CPT coding of percutaneous biopsies, abscess and cyst drainages, and tumor ablations. Specific examples and case studies are used to demonstrate the coding rules surrounding these procedures. We explain the differences between a needle aspiration and a biopsy, the breast biopsy and localization codes, and drainage procedures, including drainage tube placement, aspiration procedures, imaging evaluation of the abscess cavity, and drainage tube replacement.
