ICD-9 help location of endoscopic camera

  1. Default ICD-9 help location of endoscopic camera
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient had an abdomen x-ray for location of endoscopic camera. Conclusion reads small endoscopic camera present within the right midabdomen.

    Any suggestions for a diagnosis?

    Thank you.

  2. Default ICD-9 code for endoscopic camera
    This may sound like a stupid question, but....was the endoscopic camera placed intentionally or is it's presence there due to a mechanical problem during a procedure (such as the camera breaking off, etc)?

  3. Default
    Just a guess...maybe code for a foreign body? I am assuming the camera didn't expel properly as it should and they were looking where it might be....

  4. Default icd-9 code for location of endo camera
    The reason I asked the below question before is because IF this is a "mechanical complication" of the endoscopic camera, then you would code the complication.

    This may sound like a stupid question, but....was the endoscopic camera placed intentionally or is it's presence there due to a mechanical problem during a procedure (such as the camera breaking off, etc)?
