Since V28.3 is specific for ultrasound for routine screening, it should be used over one of the V22 codes. In 1999 Coding Clinic said to use V22.x when a pregnant woman presents for an ultrasound just to get a photo. In the same issue they said to use V28.8 for routine ultrasound.
Encounter for screening for cardiovascular disorders. Z13.6 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
If you look in your ICD-9 book at V28.3 it says it is for "routine fetal ultrasound NOS". I wouldn't use V22.1. For ob ultrasounds we use V28.3 for routine screenings as well.
What is carotid artery screening? Screening examinations are tests performed to find disease before symptoms begin. The goal of screening is to detect disease at its earliest and most treatable stage.
Your doctor will recommend carotid ultrasound if you have transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) or certain types of stroke and may recommend a carotid ultrasound if you have medical conditions that increase the risk of stroke, including: High blood pressure. Diabetes. High cholesterol.
For evaluation of carotid arteries, use CPT codes 93880, duplex scan of extracranial arteries, complete bilateral study or 93882, unilateral or limited study.
1 to report a pulsatile neck mass. Use ICD-10-CM code R09. 89 to report a carotid bruit.
CPT 93880 describes bilateral duplex scan of extracranial arteries.
CPT 93922 is defined as "non-invasive physiologic studies of upper or lower extremity arteries, single level, bilateral (e.g., ankle/brachial indices, Doppler waveform analysis, volume plethysmography, transcutaneous oxygen tension measurement)." CPT 93923 is defined as "non-invasive physiologic studies of upper or ...
New description of CPT code 76881 and 76882 As you can see the below description, CPT code 76881 exam includes the joint space and the surrounding soft tissues. While CPT code 76882 is a limited exam which involves a joint space or surrounding soft tissues such as tendons or nerves.
Abnormal ultrasonic finding on antenatal screening of mother O28. 3 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM O28. 3 became effective on October 1, 2021.

In carotid artery screening, individuals who have no signs or symptoms of carotid artery disease undergo ultrasound (US) imaging of the carotid arteries, such as: carotid intima media thickness (IMT) ultrasound.
Screening tests may include laboratory tests to check blood and other fluids, genetic tests that look for inherited genetic markers linked to disease, and imaging tests that produce pictures of the inside of the body.
Screening examinations are tests performed to find disease before symptoms begin. The goal of screening is to detect disease at its earliest and most treatable stage. In order to be widely accepted and recommended by medical practitioners, a screening program must meet a number of criteria, including reducing the number ...
Left untreated, carotid artery disease increases the risk for stroke. A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is obstructed by plaque or blood clots, when bits of plaque break free and travel to smaller arteries in the brain, or when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures. A lack of oxygen and other essential nutrients may cause permanent damage ...
Many strokes are prevented as a result.
The American Heart Association guidelines also state that carotid duplex US is a reasonable approach for asymptomatic patients with carotid bruit, an ab normal sound that may indicate turbulent blood flow, detected by a stethoscope when placed on top of the carotid arteries in the neck.
V28.3 is a legacy non-billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of encounter for routine screening for malformation using ultrasonics. This code was replaced on September 30, 2015 by its ICD-10 equivalent.
The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.
