Price: $270.00


Description Biographies Continuing Education

Providing instruction in coding for nonvascular catheter-based drainage procedures, this webcast will provide coding for thoracentesis, paracentesis, fluid-collections, indwelling catheters, needle-based procedures, and guidance on more 2017 nonvascular catheter-based drainage procedures.

The agenda, covered by our presenter, Jeff Majchrzak includes a review of component coding and interventional radiology coding guidelines, as well as:

  • Fluid Collection Drainage Catheter
    • Types of Fluid Collection
    • Why catheters are placed
    • Types of catheters
  • Catheters/Drainages Devices
  • Image-Guided Fluid Collection
  • Needle vs. Catheter vs. Catheter Used, But Not Left In
  • Intraperitoneal Catheter Procedures
  • Paracentesis & Peritoneal Lavage
  • Digestive System
  • Case Examples

Note: Before participating in this session, we recommend that you attend our 2017 Basics of Interventional Radiology Coding webcast, which covers general IR coding essentials.
