Thread: documentation for selective renal angiography during heart cath

    Default documentation for selective renal angiography during heart cath

    AAPC: Back to School
    What kind of documentation is required to be in the report when a physician does a selective renal angiography during heart cath. I have seen that is is required to have a complete renal ultrasound report even reporting on venous phase. Is this really required? I have been able to finally get my doc's to say whether they selectively or non selectively engaged the renal artery but I am really not clear on what needs to be in the documentation. Thanks alot, shelly.

    From my understanding, they need to say they selectively engaged the cath into the renal artery(ies), shot the contrast and then give a result for the renal(s).
