    Default hypoechoic focus in liver
    Medical Coding Books
    Help please. What ICD-9 code would be best to use when physician orders pt for an ultrasound and he says 1.9cm hypoechoic focus in liver? I saw that some people thought that 573.8, other specified disorders of liver was correct. Or should a uncertain behavior or benign neoplasm of liver be best? 239.0? Thanks in advance.

    i'd go with 793.6
