A Guide To Radiological Procedures 4th Edn !!TOP!!



The CPT coding system offers doctors across the country a uniform process for coding medical services that streamlines reporting and increases accuracy and efficiency. For more than 5 decades, physicians and other health care professionals have relied on CPT to communicate with colleagues, patients, hospitals and insurers about the procedures they have performed.




A Guide To Radiological Procedures 4th Edn



CPT descriptive terms and identifying codes currently serve a wide variety of important functions. This system of terminology is the most widely accepted medical nomenclature used to report medical procedures and services under public and private health insurance programs. CPT is also used for administrative management purposes such as claims processing and developing guidelines for medical care review.


The AMA first developed and published CPT in 1966. The 1st edition helped encourage the use of standard terms and descriptors to document procedures in the medical record, helped communicate accurate information on procedures and services to agencies concerned with insurance claims, provided the basis for a computer oriented system to evaluate operative procedures and contributed basic information for actuarial and statistical purposes.


The 1st edition of CPT contained primarily surgical procedures, with limited sections on medicine, radiology and laboratory procedures. The 2nd edition was published in 1970 and presented an expanded system of terms and codes to designate diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in surgery, medicine and the specialties. At that time, a 5-digit coding system was introduced, replacing the former 4-digit classification. Another significant change was a listing of procedures relating to internal medicine.


In the mid to late 1970s, the 3rd and 4th editions of CPT were introduced. The 4th edition, published in 1977, represented significant updates in medical technology, and a system of periodic updating was introduced to keep pace with the rapidly changing medical environment. In 1983 CPT was adopted as part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), formerly Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA), Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS). With this adoption, CMS mandated the use of HCPCS to report services for Part B of the Medicare Program. In October 1986, CMS also required state Medicaid agencies to use HCPCS in the Medicaid Management Information System. In 2000, the CPT code set was designated by the Department of Health and Human Services as the national coding standard for physician and other health care professional services and procedures under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Keep reference books handy on your iPad and Kindles, especially the normal radiological anatomy books, while you are reporting. You can read about a particular case when you encounter one during your practice But for building up core concepts, you SHOULD stick to physical books!


In October 2014, the American Society of Anesthesiologists Committee on Standards and Practice Parameters recommended that new practice guidelines addressing moderate procedural sedation and analgesia be developed.


Differ from previous guidelines in that they were developed by a multidisciplinary task force of physicians from several medical and dental specialty organizations with the intent of specifically addressing moderate procedural sedation provided by any medical specialty in any location.


PRACTICE guidelines are systematically developed recommendations that assist the practitioner and patient in making decisions about health care. These recommendations may be adopted, modified, or rejected according to clinical needs and constraints and are not intended to replace local institutional policies. In addition, these practice guidelines are not intended as standards or absolute requirements, and their use cannot guarantee any specific outcome. Practice guidelines are subject to revision as warranted by the evolution of medical knowledge, technology, and practice. They provide basic recommendations that are supported by a synthesis and analysis of the current literature, expert and practitioner opinion, open forum commentary, and clinical feasibility data.


These guidelines apply to moderate sedation and analgesia before, during, and after procedures. Sedation and analgesia comprises a continuum of states ranging from minimal sedation (anxiolysis) through general anesthesia, as defined by the American Society of Anesthesiologists and accepted by the Joint Commission (table 1).2,3 Level of sedation is entirely independent of the route of administration. Moderate and deep sedation or general anesthesia may be achieved via any route of administration.


The purposes of these guidelines are to allow clinicians to optimize the benefits of moderate procedural sedation regardless of site of service; to guide practitioners in appropriate patient selection; to decrease the risk of adverse patient outcomes (e.g., apnea, airway obstruction, respiratory arrest, cardiac arrest, death); to encourage sedation education, training, and research; and to offer evidence-based data to promote cross-specialty consistency for moderate sedation practice.


Moderate sedation/analgesia provides patient tolerance of unpleasant or prolonged procedures through relief of anxiety, discomfort, and/or pain. If the patient response results in deeper sedation than intended, these sedation practices can be associated with cardiac or respiratory depression that must be rapidly recognized and appropriately managed to avoid the risk of hypoxic brain damage, cardiac arrest, or death. Conversely, inadequate sedation or analgesia can result in undue patient discomfort or patient injury, lack of cooperation, or adverse physiological or psychological responses to stress.


These guidelines focus specifically on the administration of moderate sedation and analgesia for adults and children. The guidelines exclude patients who are not undergoing a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure (e.g., postoperative analgesia). Because minimal sedation (anxiolysis) may entail minimal risk, the guidelines specifically exclude it. Examples of minimal sedation are (1) less than 50% nitrous oxide in oxygen with no other sedative or analgesic medications by any route and (2) a single, oral sedative or analgesic medication administered in doses appropriate for the unsupervised treatment of anxiety or pain. The guidelines do not apply to patients receiving deep sedation, general anesthesia, or major conduction (i.e., neuraxial) anesthesia. Additional interventions excluded from these guidelines include but are not limited to patient-controlled sedation/analgesia, sedatives administered before or during regional and central neuraxis anesthesia, premedication for general anesthesia, interventions without sedatives (e.g., hypnosis, acupuncture), new or rarely administered sedative/analgesics, new or rarely used monitoring or delivery devices, and automated sedative delivery systems. These guidelines do not address education, training, or certification requirements for practitioners who provide moderate procedural sedation.


These guidelines are intended for use by all providers who perform moderate procedural sedation and analgesia in any inpatient or outpatient setting including but not limited to hospitals, ambulatory procedural centers, hospital-connected or freestanding office practices (e.g., dental, urology, or ophthalmology offices), endoscopy suites, plastic surgery suites, radiology suites (magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography), oral and maxillofacial surgery suites, cardiac catheterization laboratories, oncology clinics, electrophysiology laboratories, interventional radiology laboratories, neurointerventional laboratories, echocardiography laboratories, and evoked auditory testing laboratories. They are intended to serve as a resource for other physicians and patient care personnel who are involved in the care of these patients, including those involved in local policy development. 041b061a72
