Description Biography Continuing Education

By popular request, this MedLearn Publishing webcast tackles the interpretation of physician reports for a broad range of atypical, but ultra-challenging, interventional radiology procedures, both vascular and nonvascular. Prominent IR coding expert Jeff Majchrzak will explain, in his unique clear-cut style, the diversity of terms, vernacular and slang physicians use to report the same vascular or nonvascular IR procedure. Along with increased understanding, you'll gain confidence in your coding and billing.

What's on the Agenda:

  • A review of advanced vascular and nonvascular IR cases, both diagnostic and therapeutic, that attendees of past webcasts have asked Jeff to address, including:
    • Embolization
    • Vein ablation and sclerosing
    • Axillofemoral grafts
    • Drainage tube changes and removals
    • Genitourinary procedures
    • Lumbar punctures
    • Paracentesis
    • Breast localization
    • Venous shunts
    • Pre-90Y imaging and treatment
    • Bone marrow aspiration
    • Cyst aspiration
    • Attempted procedures
  • Using actual reports, identification and interpretation of the multiple ways physicians describe these procedures, from subtle variations to entirely different words and phrases
  • How to translate this new understanding into the appropriate CPT® code assignments, 100% compliant billing and the full, legal reimbursement
  • Time permitting, answers to attendee questions

Who Should Attend:

Coders, billing staff, revenue cycle manager, compliance staff, HIM staff, physicians who perform these services and radiology staff who oversee or are involved with IR coding.
