Coding Strategies: Interventional Radiology Curriculum (Main Library)

Description
The Coding Strategies: Interventional Radiology Curriculum is a collection of six online courses that cover all aspects of procedure coding for interventional radiology services. The curriculum includes courses on arterial catheterization and arteriography, venous procedures, transcatheter interventions such as angioplasty and stenting, non-vascular procedures like tube placements and biopsies, and endovascular aneurysm repair. Each course explains procedure techniques, coding guidelines, modifier use, coverage issues, and reimbursement considerations. The courses contain examples, case studies, and multiple-choice exercises to improve comprehension and retention. Each course ends with a multiple-choice assessment to test the learner’s knowledge of the material.

Features
In addition to coding guidelines, the Interventional Radiology curriculum contains explanations of relevant anatomy, procedure techniques, and documentation requirements. Participants have the opportunity to hone their skills by coding actual procedure notes and receiving immediate feedback on their code selections. The curriculum also includes printable anatomic diagrams to assist in the coding process.

Users can access the Online Learning Center whenever and wherever they wish. At each login, users are returned to the last slide viewed during the previous session, allowing for convenient and flexible learning.

Audience
Professionals who are responsible for coding or charge capture for interventional radiology services in the physician practice or hospital outpatient setting.

Audience

Professionals who are responsible for coding or charge capture for interventional radiology services in the physician practice or hospital outpatient setting.

Description

This course introduces participants to basic arterial anatomy as well as key coding concepts for arterial catheterization, including vascular families, vessel order, etc. The course also discusses modifier use, documentation requirements, and bundling. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Arterial anatomy
  • Non-selective versus selective catheterization
  • Head and neck catheterization
  • Upper extremity catheterization
  • Catheterization of thoracic arteries
  • Catheterization of abdominal and pelvic arteries
  • Lower extremity catheterization

 

Features

The course discusses coding guidelines, documentation requirements, modifier use, and bundling issues. It includes exercises and actual radiology reports for hands-on learning, as well as a printable job aid with anatomic diagrams. At the completion of the course, a scored assessment tests the learner’s comprehension of the material. This course will take most users about six hours to complete.

Non-Vascular Interventions

Pub Code: XXIRCCSIVR5

Audience
Professionals who are responsible for coding or charge capture for interventional radiology services in the physician practice or hospital outpatient setting.

Description

Although vascular procedures make up a large part of the typical interventional radiology caseload, the interventionalist can perform many other types of procedures to diagnose and treat disease and trauma. This course discusses many of the common non-vascular interventions. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Relevant anatomy
  • Cholangiograms and biliary drainage procedures
  • Pyelograms, nephrostomies, and ureteral stents
  • Fine needle aspiration
  • Thoracentesis and pleural catheters
  • Other drainage and aspiration procedures
  • Vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, and sacroplasty
  • Radiofrequency ablation and cryotherapy

 

Features
The course discusses procedure techniques, coding guidelines, documentation requirements, modifier use, and bundling issues. It includes exercises and actual radiology reports for hands-on learning. At the completion of the course, a scored assessment tests the learner’s comprehension of the material. This course will take most users about six hours to complete.
