Avatar n tn Most of the codes we see in the United States today are version 9, called ICD-9-CM codes.

The diagnosis or clinical suspicion must be present for the procedures to be considered medically necessary.
Avatar n tn code you are referring to is the ICD (International Classification of Diseases) code for your illness.

"162.9" is the code for the diagnosis of "malignant neoplasm of the bronchus and lungs, not specified" - lung cancer in plain English.
3072999 tn?1356414732 Hi Tink, I am actually a medical coder for a hospital -the ICD-10 code would be G93.5. The ICD-9 code is 384.4. Since ICD-9 is not very specific they may have put a I after to show it is a Chiari Malformation type 1. In ICD-10 it is more specific - G93.5 states Chiari Malformation 1. So I am assuming since the ICD-9 code of 384.4 just states compression of brain they had to add a 1 so it was more specific for their notes.

Avatar n tn However, microcalcifications that grow in a cluster are suspicious because they sometimes cluster around a mass. In other words, while the mass may not be visualized on film, a cluster of microcalcifications may indicate that there is abnormal growth in the area. It is proper in most cases to biopsy the area of microcalcifications. This would most likely be done with mammography guidance.
Avatar n tn I had a specific perscription from the doc along with a certificate of need and ICD-9 code number for the billing department.
