Clarify physician intent and pinpoint the right codes
Looking to save time coding for IR procedures while boosting the accuracy of your coding? It’s easy to do with our quick-reference anatomical charts! Aided by high-quality images, color-coding, and tips throughout, our Interventional Radiology Coding Charts will clarify physician intent and provide an at-a-glance visual pathway to the correct CPT® codes for common and complex interventional radiology procedures.
Coding could be as easy as putting these at-a-glance charts in the hands of your coders. Quickly identify the correct CPT codes for procedures performed across all body systems, from head, neck, and chest to the lower extremities and everything in between – we have it covered for both vascular and non-vascular services. If you’re coding for angiography, angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, embolization, or dialysis graft/fistula, these charts will help follow the path of the procedure and clear up the often-confusing rules dictating code choices.
Are you new to IR coding or taking on new procedures? Maybe you’re looking for a deeper understanding of IR services? Do you want to enhance your CIRCC exam preparation? Our Interventional Radiology Coding Charts make great educational and training tools for coding teams, billing staff, techs and physicians and more! They are also the ideal complement to our Interventional Radiology Coder book.
