    On the table of risk, what level would an MRI fall under? Thanks for your help

    I think that depends on why the MRI is being done.

    I work in an ortho office so the mri could be to rule out a meniscal tear or to diagnosis back pain. There is a difference in risk between these two?

    I found a previous post on the forums:

    These folks agreed the MRI itself falls under minimal in the DX procedures ordered column.

  5. Default Annotated risk table?
    If anyone happens to have a Risk Table on which they have made notations regarding various things they have seen and where they fit, I would really appreciate a copy. I'm taking the CPMA exam in a couple weeks and seeing anything like this would be much appreciated.
