    What is the correct DX code for an abnormal MRI of the brain? I've seen it coded 2 different ways 793.0 or 794.09. Does anyone know which is correct? Thanks!

    We've always used the 793.XX catergories when it comes to US, Xrays, MRI's. I was told that 794.XX is geard towards function studies, uptake studies and scans.
