  18. 2017 - CPT Coding for Abdominal Aortography and Lower Extremity Angiography

    This course includes coding instructions for imaging of the abdominal aorta and the extremity arteries whether performed in combination or separately.  Both selective and non-selective imaging procedures are explained in detail.  Numerous actual case examples are presented to assist in coding from the physician documentation.

  19. 2017 - CPT Coding for Lower Extremity Arterial Endovascular Revascularization

    Transcatheter lower extremity arterial revascularization is coded much differently than other vascular systems. There is significantly more bundling, and the rules differ based on the specific artery intervened upon. This increases the complexity of coding for these interventions.

  20. 2017 - CPT Coding for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions

    This module covers all types of transcatheter percutaneous coronary interventions and their coding rules are discussed in this course. Specific examples are presented for each kind of intervention to assist with converting a physician report to the appropriate CPT codes for billing.

  21. 2017 - CPT Coding for Implantable Defibrillators

    This module demonstrates appropriate coding for all transvenous ICD procedures, including implantation, revision, replacement, and upgrade. It also covers procedures involving electrodes, such as replacement, repair, repositioning, and insertion. ICD pocket revision is also included in this thorough discussion of CPT coding for implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.

  22. 2017 - CPT Coding for Non-Coronary Vascular Stent Placement

    This course covers all vascular stent placement except those performed in the coronary, iliac, femoral, tibial, peroneal, and popliteal arteries (which have separate courses). The student will be guided through all other types of vascular stent placement procedures and the coding rules applicable to each. This includes the carotid artery, vertebral artery, TIPS, venous system, visceral arteries, renal arteries, and other vascular systems.

Coding rules for each common combination of procedures are explained followed by actual case examples of each to demonstrate the documentation that supports each separately reportable procedure code.

  25. 2017 - CPT Coding for Transcatheter Mechanical Thrombectomy

    This course covers the coding of all types of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy procedures, including coronary artery, AV hemodialysis access device, peripheral arterial, and peripheral venous thrombectomy. The different types of thrombectomy devices are described to assist in recognizing terminology associated with the procedure.

  26. 2017 - CPT Coding for Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterizations

    This course covers all of the diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedure codes. We discuss when each code is used, what is included, and when to report add-on codes. Case examples are presented to assist in converting a physician dictated report into CPT codes.

  27. 2017 - Introduction to ICD-10-CM

    This course is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of how to use the ICD-10-CM coding system. Helpful coding tips are provided for each chapter. There is a heavy emphasis on diagnoses that are relevant to cardiovascular and interventional radiology procedures.
