This nuclear medicine online course prepares coders working in the physician practice or hospital outpatient setting to assign procedure codes for diagnostic nuclear medicine services other than PET. (PET studies are covered in course DRG8.) The course discusses coding guidelines, modifier use, documentation requirements, and bundling issues. It includes exercises and actual radiology reports for hands-on learning. At the completion of the course, a scored assessment tests the learner’s comprehension of the material.  This course will take most users about 6 hours to complete.  Topics include but are not limited to:
