Radiology Reporting (Part 1, Technical Review of Outpatient Radiology Services)

In this session, we’re going to get technical about outpatient radiology services. Some review organizations have gotten technical too and have made this topic part of their focus. We won’t be discussing specific codes for reporting; but rather, we will be digging deeper into the technical billing requirements and issues that affect reporting of radiology services.
