Other abnormal and inconclusive findings on diagnostic imaging of breast

Version 2020 Billable Code No Valid Principal Dx

Valid for Submission

R92.8 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other abnormal and inconclusive findings on diagnostic imaging of breast. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code R92.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like abnormal finding on screening procedure, abnormal findings on diagnostic imaging of breast, almost entirely fat breast composition, architectural distortion of breast, asymmetric breast tissue, breast composition, etc

According to ICD-10-CM guidelines this code should not to be used as a principal diagnosis code when a related definitive diagnosis has been established.

Information for Patients


Mammography

A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. It can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. It can also be used if you have a lump or other sign of breast cancer.

Screening mammography is the type of mammogram that checks you when you have no symptoms. It can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 70. But it can also have drawbacks. Mammograms can sometimes find something that looks abnormal but isn't cancer. This leads to further testing and can cause you anxiety. Sometimes mammograms can miss cancer when it is there. It also exposes you to radiation. You should talk to your doctor about the benefits and drawbacks of mammograms. Together, you can decide when to start and how often to have a mammogram.

Mammograms are also recommended for younger women who have symptoms of breast cancer or who have a high risk of the disease.

When you have a mammogram, you stand in front of an x-ray machine. The person who takes the x-rays places your breast between two plastic plates. The plates press your breast and make it flat. This may be uncomfortable, but it helps get a clear picture. You should get a written report of your mammogram results within 30 days.
