This webinar is a high level overview of the extensive 2021 coding changes to interventional radiology, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, and vascular surgery.
This webinar covers the basics of choosing the correct catheter selection codes during complex diagnostic and interventional cases. Focuses on:
- Physician documentation and anatomy (normal and variant)
- Vascular systems, vascular orders, and vascular families
- Selective vs. non-selective catheter placement
This webinar builds on the coding basics of physician documentation and reviewing catheter selection codes. It covers:
- The imaging supervision and interpretation (S&I) 70,000 series of CPT codes
- Extremity, visceral, cervicocerebral, thoracic, and abdominal arterial studies
- Venous, pulmonary, and portal venous imaging codes
This webinar covers angioplasty, atherectomy, and stenting throughout the vascular system. Specifically:
- Lower extremity endovascular revascularization procedures
- Visceral, upper extremity, and venous procedures
- Cervicocerebral revascularization procedures utilizing endovascular approach
This webinar concentrates on percutaneous embolization, thrombectomy, and infusion (both thrombolytic and non-thrombolytic) procedures. Examines:
- Guidelines for interventions on native vessels as well as graft vessels
- Coding as stand-alone procedures
- Coding procedures performed with other interventions
This webinar concentrates on endovascular stent grafts and venous interventions. Discusses:
- Thoracic aortic (TEVAR), abdominal aortic (EVAR), and fenestrated abdominal aortic (FEVAR) stent grafts
- Coding interventions performed in veins (e.g., TIPS, filter placement, and saphenous vein ablations)
This webinar focuses on coding genitourinary, biliary, and gastrointestinal procedures. Some topics covered include:
- Diagnostic cholangiography and nephrostogram
- Biliary and nephrostomy drainage tube placement, replacement, and removal
- Percutaneous gastrointestinal procedures
- Other percutaneous procedures such as stone removal, dilation, and conversion
This webinar focuses on percutaneous biopsies, abscess and cyst drainages, and tumor ablations. Topics include:
- Differences between a needle aspiration and a biopsy
- Breast biopsy and localization codes
- Drainage procedures, including drainage tube placement, aspiration procedures, imaging evaluation of the abscess cavity, and drainage tube replacement
This webinar covers procedures in the subspecialty area of neuroradiology - complex endovascular procedures that involve vascular imaging and intervention in the head, neck, and spine. Some topics include:
- Intracranial angioplasty, vasospasm therapy, embolization procedures
- Venous sampling, thrombolysis, thrombectomy
- Carotid, vertebral, and intracranial stenting
This webinar focuses on coding guidelines and documentation required for cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography. Reviews:
- Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography procedures
- Peripheral diagnostic procedures performed with heart catheterizations
- Add-on components and their appropriate use with cardiac catheterization procedure codes
This webinar covers percutaneous cardiac interventions performed in the cardiac catheterization lab, including coronary artery interventions, such as stent placement, PTCA, atherectomy, and other revascularization procedures. Reviews:
- Thrombectomy, thrombolysis, IVUS, OCT, NIR, and FFR
- Physician documentation requirements
- Cardiac chamber interventions (such as patent foramen ovale, atrial septal defect, VSD, PDA closure, valve repairs, valvuloplasty, valve replacement, and left atrial appendage ablation)
This webinar focuses on peripheral diagnostic and interventional procedures in the catheterization lab. Major areas covered include:
- Catheter selections and diagnostic imaging
- Peripheral and visceral angioplasty, atherectomy, stent placement
- Thrombectomy, thrombolysis, and embolization
This webinar covers electrophysiologic procedures including mapping, pharmacologic challenge, diagnostic studies, and ablation.
- Covers pacemaker and defibrillator insertions, revisions, and removals
- Discusses the five electrophysiology ablation procedure codes
- Numerous case examples demonstrate appropriate use of these codes
This webinar broadly covers diagnostic cardiac catheterization, diagnostic imaging, and cardiac interventions in patients with congenital heart defects. Reviews:
- Common congenital syndromes and pertinent anatomy
- The appropriate coding of peripheral diagnostic imaging and interventional procedures that may be performed in conjunction with congenital heart catheterizations
- Complex cardiac chamber interventions
- Bundling, documentation, and catheter placements are also discussed
This webinar covers cardiac and thoracic procedures including open as well as endovascular techniques. Some of the procedures covered include mediastinal, operative ablations, CABG, valves, lung-open and VATS, assist devices, structural heart, transplants, and repairs of the thoracic aorta.
This webinar focuses on those individuals contemplating taking the CIRCC credentialing exam offered by the AAPC.
- Up-to-date review of codes covered by the CIRCC exam
- High level overview that includes a review of test taking skills
- Discussion of all 2021 updates pertinent to the CIRCC exam in areas of interventional radiology and coronary arterial intervention
The purpose of this webinar is to familiarize the coder with ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding for non-vascular conditions. This webinar includes coding instructions for infectious processes, congenital anomalies, genitourinary disorders (including chronic kidney disease), digestive system disorders, biliary calculus, nervous system disorders, and diabetes mellitus.
The purpose of this webinar is to familiarize the coder with ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding for cardiovascular conditions. This webinar includes diagnosis coding instructions for angina with or without coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, valve disorders, cardiomyopathy, heart failure, rheumatic heart disease, heart block, rhythm disorders, hypertension, pulmonary heart disease, pulmonary embolism, and pulmonary hypertension.
