I bill for a radiologist who reads x-rays done at a hospital. Many times (Emergency Dept mostly) the only diagnosis I get is something like "hand caught in door" or "patient fell". According to a 2006 Coding Clinic publication they advise not to assume injury when the diagnosis is "trauma" because "trauma" is not always indicative of injury. Are there any radiology coders who can tell me how they handle these situations? Thanks!
