WHAT DX TO USE FOR BENIGN PATH

Maarit Posted Fri 09th of March, 2012 21:41:13 PM

EGD note reads under "impression": esophagitis. The pathology report on Bx says "normal". Can I use the physician impression as Dx, or should I default to symptom Dx in this case?

You can use impression Dx if its documented in OP report.
