With increasing advances in catheter-based therapies on the heart and coronary arteries, it becomes more difficult to figure out which procedures are being performed and how to code for them. In this webinar, we will start with a simple primer on heart and coronary anatomy and then discuss cardiac catheterizations and percutaneous coronary interventions. The experience will be capped off with a walk through case studies where we will apply guidelines and other official advice to code cases.


  • Differentiate between coronary artery imaging and imaging of heart chambers
  • Determine PCS values for different types of contrast material
  • Select device values for angioplasty and coronary stents
  • Apply codes to case studies

Target Audience

  • Facility inpatient coders
  • Clinical Documentation Improvement Professionals
  • Coding Compliance Professionals
  • Coding Compliance Managers

    Heart anatomy being compared to a house definitely made my understanding of it so much better; I appreciated the slide of different types of contrast and which character they fall under-will certainly come in handy for my coding going forward (less Googling for sure!); I always learn so much from Kristi’s presentations!

  23. Nicole

    Clearer anatomy of the heart

  24. Haugen Customer

    Gave me a better understand of anatomy and how blood flows through the heart. I kinda knew before but this cemented it. Great analogies with the house/plumbing.

  25. Cynthia

    I love the plumming VS. house picture she painted.

  26. Haugen Customer

    I loved the reference to the heart as a house and the plumbing and doors

  27. Haugen Customer

    Like the correlation of using the plumbing vs electrical

  28. Haugen Customer

    Refresher on the heart anatomy and coronary vessels

  29. Stephanie

    The pictures really helped understand between the heart chambers and the arteries. I have a clear understanding of the imaging done now.

    difference between left and right heart cath. better understanding of the contrast that’s used understanding Impella

  57. Haugen Customer

    Learned about the removal of Impella device surgical approach is percutaneous and not open when a femoral artery cutdown is done to reach device.

  58. Haugen Customer

    Learned more about the heart

  59. Haugen Customer

    Revisiting the basic anatomy was helpful. I found this to be a well designed webinar.

  79. Daniel

    Better understanding of the anatomy of the heart. Found it to be very helpful!

  80. Haugen Customer

    Got a better understanding of the procedures

  81. Loraine

    i am much more clear about what to look for verifications that the procedures were done. I also didn’t understand what exactly Drug Eluting purposes were. Overall I really felt this webinar is really good.
