Interventional radiologists perform a broad spectrum of intricate treatments throughout the anatomy such as ablations, chemo-embolization, thrombolysis, balloon occlusions, dilating and stenting distant arteries. Regular coders are rarely familiar with these interventional procedures or the interventional radiology-specific coding rules and edits. Regular operative reports are generally very brief, and the coders’ main challenge is to find a code-able diagnostic statement, but interventional radiologist reports are often long and intimidating. As a result, the responsibility for coding frequently defaults back to the providers.
