In-depth discussion of coding for abdominal imaging and interventions
Providing instruction in coding for abdominal angiography and interventions, this session will discuss the differences and nuances in code choices for a full range of services, including aortic endograft procedures, with guidance on when each code is appropriate to use, and how those code choices can change based on how the procedure is performed. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves and corresponding code choices, reinforced with examples, case studies and anatomic diagrams, you will walk away confident when coding for abdominal procedures.

- Abdominal/visceral angiography
- Overview of CPT codes and how they relate to procedures, anatomy and key phrases to look for in documentation
