Question and answer
The guidelines give specific parameters to use when coding laboratory tests as panels. What determines when certain tests can be reported as a panel? What specific directions are given?
Do you agree that the guidelines need to be so specific? Why or why not? Support your answer
AMA staff reviews all correspondence to evaluate coding suggestions. If AMA staff determines that the Panel has already addressed the question, staff informs the requestor of the Panel's interpretation. [ [ However, if staff determines that the request is a new issue, or significant new information is received on an item that the Panel reviewed previously, the request is referred to appropriate
members of the CPT Advisory Committee. If the advisors agree that no new code or revision is needed, AMA staff provides information to the requestor on how to use existing codes to report the procedure. Read more at ] ]

What is the difference between a CAT scan and an MRI? Is there a time when a physician would prefer to use one procedure over another? Keeping in mind that MRI exams are typically much more expensive than CT, should the cost of one exam override its use in favor of the other? Explain your answe
Weegy: yes because MRI is more detailed than CT scan. People often question their doctors as to why certain procedures must be made for some specific treatment. More so, a procedure is recommended over the other by the physician. [ [ In this regard, two related diagnostic tests were scrutinized, not only because of their price, but also because of the benefits that patients receive on completion of these procedures. These are the MRI and CT scan. From the perspective of body parts to be examined, the CT scan does not show the view of the spinal cord, ligaments and tendons (or maybe not at this time) clearly. Still, MRI is the ideal choice for this function. To see the tumor, an MRI is the best option. In addition, for other cases such as brain hemorrhage it is used, knowing the extent of cancer and pneumonia in the body, confirming the abnormal CXR box (the X-ray), the CT scanner is dubbed as the treatment modality of choice and not preference. It is also the reason why said device is the best in the examination of the lungs or body parts, because he can see the cavities of a much better way than the MRI. ] ] (More)
