About The Book
An invaluable resource for CPT(R) surgical coding with integrated anatomical instructions and illustrations. No other book brings anatomic and coding concepts together with the same degree of completeness and educational value. This brand new publication from the AMA unites annotated CPT surgical codes and descriptions with clinically significant renderings by renowned medical illustrator, Frank H. Netter, MD, to simplify the navigation through complex operative reports for CPT code abstraction. This is an ideal tool to boost anatomical knowledge within the context of CPT codes. More than 700 individual Netter illustrations paired with specific code ranges to guide code selection. Figure captions provide full descriptions about the anatomies and procedures illustrated by the images to assist in code selection. Unique feature! Coding Atlas presents additional information and details of anatomy related to procedures within specific CPT code ranges. A comprehensive glossary of procedural and anatomical terms simplifies complex terminology to promote further understanding.
