Your coder-friendly guide to coronary assessment -- learn where you’re missing out on big payments.

Echocardiograph, nuclear imaging, and diagnostic heart catheterization are your bread and butter -- and minor coding oversights on these procedures can add up.

  • Jim illustrates how to harvest codes using sample diagnostic test reports.
