Experts to Discuss Benefits of CT Colonography in Upcoming Webinar

American College of Radiology® (ACR®) members have an opportunity to learn practical, up-to-date information about CT colonography (CTC) at an upcoming webinar, CT Colonography: Clinical Application and Reimbursement. Bracco Diagnostics, Inc. will present the webinar Thursday, March 16, 1–2pm ET.

Kevin J. Chang, MD, FACR, FSAR, a member of the ACR Colon Cancer Committee and noted CTC expert, will join Donna Richmond, BA, RCC, CIRCC, CPC, to review the epidemiology and pathophysiology of colorectal cancer and justifications for colorectal screening.

Participants will be able to explore the CTC procedure and compare and contrast it with other screening options, learn the appropriate codes for CTC, find useful billing resources, and understand Medicare and other payer policies. A portion of the session will also be devoted to a question-and-answer session.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. This presentation is pending CE approval by the following credentialing agencies: American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA), Category A, American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and Radiology Coding Certification Board (RCCB).

Register online to attend the free webinar.

ACR encourages facilities to register their CTC screening center so patients can find their facility and get screened. ACR also offers a variety of free resources for patients and providers about colorectal cancer screening. For more information, contact Alicia Blakey, ACR Principal Economic Policy Analyst.
