    Question Breast Dx question.

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone give information on what the difference is between Dx 611.7x, 611.8x, and 793.8x? For example, if a report states probable nodular density would 793.89 be used as there is something there but the radiologist cannot pin-point what it is exactly?
