PELVIS, SACRUM MRI

Evelyn Posted Fri 20th of May, 2011 14:07:49 PM

AN MRI OF THE SACRUM AND PELVIS IS ORDERED, THE EXAM IS A COMPLETE PELVIS AND A MORE NARROWED COMPLETE EXAM OF THE SACRUM. HOW WOULD THIS BE CODED?

SuperCoder Answered Fri 20th of May, 2011 18:01:13 PM

If both Sacrum and Pelvis focused only on bony anatomical structure in both the reports, then we should code only one for MRI Pelvis.
But, if MRI Sacrum also documented lumbar spinal details, then you can code both MRI Pelvis and MRI Lumbosacral spine together.
