    Default 93306 verses 93307 documentation examples

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does any one out there know where I can find an example of documention of both 93306 and 93307. I'm trying to explain to a radiologist the differences between the studies and why the 93306 need more info. Thanks

    This doesn't give a documentation description, but there may be some useful info.

    Talking Thanks

    Actually it did, I had looked at this site before posting my question but looking at it again I found a guidelines and standards paper that ASE put out which does include the info that I was looking for. Regarding the report page 7 has a table
    Table 4
    Recommended TTE findings
    Left ventricle
    Left atrium
    Right atrium
    Right ventricle
    Aortic valve
    Mitral valve
    Tricuspid valve
    Pulmonic valve
    Pulmonary artery
    Inferior vena cava
    Pulmonary veins
    Interatrial septum
    Interventricular septum
    Each structure should be characterized by (1) size and function, (2)
    measurement of an object in the section, (3) spectral or color Doppler
    or (4) a comment that the structure was not well visualized and
    could not be evaluated. For pediatric exams, additional structures
    are included, such as coronary arteries. For a limited study, the
    exam is focused, and the report does not need to include a comment
    on all sections.

    I was trying to explain why spectral and color doppler need to be mentioned in the report or that down coding to 93307 would be necessary hopefully this will get the message across.
