Have you considered using 794.39 (Other Abnormal Findings Cardiovascular Study)? Just a thought, I use this code when we have an abnormal result on a cardiac stress test but no difinitive diagnosis.

No, I haven't looked at that code, is it ok to use for the diagnosis on an abnormal cardiac echo or stress test? Thanks so much for your help!! :)

In the ICD-9 book if you go to Findings, Abnormal, stress test it will tell you to use 794.39 so you should be fine :)

Awesome! Thank you SO much! I was really "stressing" over these! LOL!! By the way, I just moved to Illinois from Kansas! I used to live in Lawrence, do you live anywhere near Lawrence?
