Insist on the best IR coding resource — too much is at stake!

Would you settle for 30% inaccurate coding of your interventional radiology cases? Yet, that’s exactly what’s happening across the country, and it’s taking a huge toll on revenues and compliance. It doesn’t have to be like this — if you depend on America’s #1 IR coding resource.

Incredibly easy to use, this compact handbook guides you quickly to the correct codes for hundreds of angiographic exams and IR procedures, including diagnostic angiography, intracranial angiography, angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, embolization, EVAR, FEVAR, TEVAR, dialysis graft/fistula and lower extremity revascularization. Do you struggle with gray areas in code selection? Expect clear-cut answers directly from our IR coding experts. Are you fully up to speed with the IR code changes for 2020? They’re all covered here!
