Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. At low doses, radiation is used in x-rays to see inside your body, as with x-rays of your teeth or broken bones.

These guidelines, developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ( CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics ( NCHS) are a set of rules developed to assist medical coders in assigning the appropriate codes. The guidelines are based on the coding and sequencing instructions from the Tabular List and the Alphabetic Index in ICD-10-CM.
Chapter 2 of the ICD-10-CM contains the codes for most benign and all malignant neoplasms. Certain benign neoplasms , such as prostatic adenomas, may be found in the specific body system chapters. To properly code a neoplasm, it is necessary to determine from the record if the neoplasm is benign, in-situ, malignant, or of uncertain histologic behavior. If malignant, any secondary ( metastatic) sites should also be determined.
When a primary malignancy has been previously excised or eradicated from its site and there is no further treatment directed to that site and there is no evidence of any existing primary malignancy at that site, a code from category Z85, Personal history of malignant neoplasm, should be used to indicate the former site of the malignancy. Any mention of extension, invasion, or metastasis to another site is coded as a secondary malignant neoplasm to that site. The secondary site may be the principal or first-listed with the Z85 code used as a secondary code.
A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion '), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere. For multiple neoplasms of the same site that are not contiguous such as tumors in different quadrants of the same breast, codes for each site should be assigned.
The neoplasm table in the Alphabetic Index should be referenced first. However, if the histological term is documented, that term should be referenced first, rather than going immediately to the Neoplasm Table, in order to determine which column in the Neoplasm Table is appropriate. Alphabetic Index to review the entries under this term and the instructional note to “see also neoplasm, by site, benign.” The table provides the proper code based on the type of neoplasm and the site. It is important to select the proper column in the table that corresponds to the type of neoplasm. The Tabular List should then be referenced to verify that the correct code has been selected from the table and that a more specific site code does not exist.
When a pregnant woman has a malignant neoplasm, a code from subcategory O9A.1 -, malignant neoplasm complicating pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium, should be sequenced first, followed by the appropriate code from Chapter 2 to indicate the type of neoplasm. Encounter for complication associated with a neoplasm.
When the reason for admission/encounter is to determine the extent of the malignancy, or for a procedure such as paracentesis or thoracentesis, the primary malignancy or appropriate metastatic site is designated as the principal or first-listed diagnosis, even though chemotherapy or radiotherapy is administered.

DRG Group #826-830 - Myeloprolif disord or poorly differentiated neoplasms with other operating room procedure without CC or MCC.
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires medical coders to indicate whether or not a condition was present at the time of admission, in order to properly assign MS-DRG codes.
The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM T66.XXXA became effective on October 1, 2021.
Use secondary code (s) from Chapter 20, External causes of morbidity, to indicate cause of injury. Codes within the T section that include the external cause do not require an additional external cause code. Type 1 Excludes.

Treatment devices, complex (CPT code 77334) is limited to one unit for each collimator in a linear accelerator system or one for each helmet in a cobalt-60 system. If the total number of units exceeds six (6) or the number of isocenters plus three (3) when multiple isocenters are necessary, a detailed explanation of medical necessity must be documented in the medical record. Documentation must specify factors, such as, multiple isocenters, irregularity of target volume (s), proximity of critical structures or other reasons which justify the units of service for dosimetry or treatment devices.
