Radiology - ultrasound pelvis

  1. Default Radiology - ultrasound pelvis
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone tell me if the doctor should read this using a transvaginal or a transabdominal approach?
    Any advise is much appreciated.

    Default
    The technique used by the sonographer is what determines whether it is transabdominal or endovaginal.

    Frequently, both approaches are used by the sonographer, and if they are both documented by the radiologist, then both approaches are billable.
