    Default MRI brachial plexus

    An MRI of the brachial Plexus was ordered with a diagnosis of Malignant neoplasm of upper-outer quadrant of female breast. What would be the appropriate code for this MRI?
    We coded 71552, but the authorization was for 73218.

    The correct code for brachial plexus is MRI of the chest 71550-71552.
