    Default Fetus with pelvic mass found on ultrasound

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a mother who came in at 36 weeks for an ultrasound. There was a mass found on the ovary of the fetus at that time. How would this be coded?? Thanks for your help!

    Default fetal ovarian mass?

    Not sure that's possible. More than likely its a fetal abdominal mass. Or they are noting a maternal ovarian mass. What exactly does the report say?

    I would use 655.83
    Since we are not the pediatrician and do not have a definate diagnosis, this code works best.
