Laboratory. Lab panels are used frequently in medicine. Find the lab panels and provide those codes in your response. Think and comment about this question. Why do you think the AMA created lab panels? When you comment on fellow students’ posts, do you agree with their posts and why or why not?
Radiology. Some radiology codes include the phrase “with contrast”, “without contrast” and “without contrast followed by contrast” What is contrast and What purpose does contrast serve? What should a radiologist take into consideration when he/she decides to use contrast? Give examples of CPT code with the words “with contrast”, without contrast” and “without contrast followed by contrast”. When you comment on fellow students’ posts, are their examples sound?
