The shortcut to faster, more precise IR coding
Improving the accuracy of your interventional radiology coding could be as easy as putting these at-a-glance charts in the hands of your coders. Each chart displays the high-quality anatomical images and corresponding information to support quick and precise IR coding.
Aided by color coding, you'll quickly identify the correct CPT® IR codes for procedures performed across all body systems, from head, neck and chest to upper extremity, lower extremity and everything in between. You'll also find actionable insights into some of today's hottest IR coding topics, including component coding and hybrid/bundled coding, as well as common — but often confusing — procedures, such as angiography, angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy and embolization.
The versatility and value of our Interventional Radiology Coding Charts have been proven in facilities across the country, whether you want to clarify physician intent, boost coding efficiency or prepare for the CIRCC exam. These charts are the ideal complement to our Interventional Radiology Coder book.

The final rules for the 2018 Medicare outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) and the Medicare physician fee schedule (MPFS) dictate the publishing dates for our books. In previous years, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have issued these final rules in early November of the previous year (November 2017), and the updating process for our books begins.
