Description Biography Continuing Education

Widespread misunderstanding of many ultrasound codes is a real problem. If you are looking for some clarification on abdominal, pelvic, OB and non-OB, nonvascular extremity or noninvasive vascular exams – plus many more – you have found it here! With an eye to documentation requirements, required imaging elements and appropriate coding, this session will bring clarity to ultrasound codes.

Presented by leading radiology coding expert Donna Richmond, BA, RCC, CIRCC, CPC, this webcast will lead you through guidelines, requirements, tips and suggestions – using case studies and examples of both good and incomplete documentation – to help ensure accurate and compliant code selection for ultrasound services.
