    Unhappy Calling All Radiology Coders
    Medical Coding Books
    Ok, in the 5 years I've been coding, I can't seem to figure out what a Quadramet Therapy Study is. I'm thinking a 79440? It says that the pt was injected in the arm. HELP!!!!!!!

    I believe the 79440 is for injections into the joint though. Was this a soft tissue or intraarticular (joint) injection?

    Also you can do an internet serch for Quadrament therapy Study and there is a lot of info available about it if you are looking for a better understanding of it.

    Cool Calling All Radiology Coders
    No, all it says is the patient's arm was injected, not site specific. I did actually search on Google for some time w/no results. Can you tell me where you have seen an article? I even checked Coding 911 and there was nothing!
