Covering imaging and interventional procedures performed in the head and neck. This session will discuss the differences and nuances in code choices for angiography, embolization, angioplasty, thrombectomy, thrombolytic infusion therapy and intravascular stenting (for both arterial and venous 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.

In-depth discussion of coding for imaging and interventional procedures in the head and neck

Providing instruction in coding for angiography and interventions performed in the head and neck. This webcast will provide much-needed clarification and examples on angioplasty, embolization, thrombectomy, thrombolytic infusion therapy, and intravascular stenting for both arterial and venous procedures. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves, the corresponding code choices, and how those code choices can change based on how the procedure was performed, reinforced with examples, case studies, and anatomic diagrams, you will walk away confident when coding for head and neck procedures.

The agenda, covered by our presenter, Cathy Huyghe includes:

  • Angiography of the head and neck
    • Cervicocerebral, arch, carotid, and vertebral imaging, additional selective 2nd and 3rd order vessels after the initial study/exam
    • Overview of CPT codes and how they relate to procedures, anatomy, and key phrases to look for in documentation
  • Head and neck interventional procedures
    • Arterial and venous with review of anatomy, procedures, and corresponding code choices for:
      • Angioplasty, stenting, embolization, thrombolytic therapy, thrombectomy, atherectomy
  • Imaging guidance – when it can and cannot be separately reported
  • Case examples and scenarios with an emphasis on the do’s and don’ts when coding for head and neck procedures with key phrases to look for in documentation
  • Answers to frequently asked questions and, time permitting, answers to attendee questions

Note: Before participating in this session, we recommend that you attend our Basics of Interventional Radiology Coding webcast, which covers general IR coding essentials.
