Pinpoint How to Code These Breast Radiology Services 

Have you wondered whether you may report 3D rendering with breast MRI CAD? You’re not alone. Many radiology practices and breast surgery centers get tangled up in the details, including what constitutes a “screening” versus a “diagnostic” mammogram and who determines that. 

Find the answers you need in this expert audio conference presented by Cheryl A. Schad, BA Ed, CPC, ACS-RA, PCS. You can ensure that you are not missing key details that could mean the difference between reimbursement and a denial.

This session will help you:

  • Highlight what documentation is necessary for billing 3D rendering in addition to breast MRIs.
  • Uncover how Medicare’s Ordering Exception rule impacts billing screening & diagnostic mammograms performed during same visit.
  • Learn how to code CADs.
  • Distinguish what constitutes a needle biopsy, wire placement, vacuum assisted biopsy, etc.
  • Draw the line between a needle aspiration and core biopsy.
  • Find out how to code metallic clip placements and specimen radiography.
  • Get your guidance procedures coded correctly (such as stereotactic, mammographic, ultrasound, CT, MRI, etc.).
