3 Common Radiology Billing Mistakes
Imaging Center billing that is efficient and effective
AHS billing technology links directly to your office (and hospital if you practice in multiple locations) RIS and other systems. Dictated radiology reports are translated directly to proper coding. When exceptions occur, our certified coders do the coding. If information is on paper, AHS workflow optimization enters data faster, with fewer errors. Software automation encompasses, and speeds, the entire billing cycle.
- Rapid service to billing intervals: measured in hours, not days or weeks.
- Increased collections from more accurate and more complete codingâ€”all fully compliant.
- Reduced coding and billing costs.
- Decreased days in A/R.

Radiologists have asked about CT (computed tomography) vs. CTA (computed tomography angiography) coding. In this article, our friends at Coding Strategies, Inc. have described the coding considerations for these important diagnostic imaging techniques. This radiological education is useful for a radiologist and for his or her radiology billing staff. Image post processing and contrast factors are both described.
