Interventional radiology and cardiology coding can
baffle even the most experienced coders. Developed to simplify coding
for imaging-assisted surgical services, the Complete Guide for
Interventional Radiology (and cardiology) is a resource that provides
specific direction for coding complex radiology and cardiology
procedures with guidelines and references for both physicians and
facility-based institutions. Includes diagrams and colored images.
