    I'm coding for emergency medicine. What is the ICD-9 code for "intracranial white matter process"? (No more description from the doctor aside from that. ) Thanks. --John

    There are too many directions to go with just that information is there more of the note you can post?

    "Intracranial white matter process with edema." Also, the CT showed extensive bilateral white matter hypodensities with some mild mass effect on the frontal horn of the left lateral ventricle.
