    Default CPT 93510. Coding off the cath lab report

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello there.

    I have a new cardio physician that doesn't want to dictate O.P reports for his catherization procedures because he says that the cath lab report is sufficent.

    Can anyone direct me to a source in writting that states the catherization and stent procedures must be dictated and that the cath lab report is not sufficent docuementation.

    Does the cath lab report give you all the pertinent information and results? Also does he sign the report?
