Lab Panels and Radiology
This discussion has two questions: answer both questions.
- Laboratory. 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 Wwhat purpose does contrast serve? What should a radiologist take into consideration when he/she decides to use contrast? Give examples. When you comment on fellow students’ posts, are their examples sound? Why or why not, and if not, explain.
