This is the 2018 version of the ICD-10-CM diagnosis code R93.8

Not Valid for Submission
The code R93.8 is a "header" and not valid for submission for HIPAA-covered transactions.

Deleted Code
This code was deleted in the 2019 ICD-10 code set with the code(s) listed below. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has published an update to the ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes which became effective October 1, 2018. This code was replaced for the FY 2019 (October 1, 2018 - September 30, 2019).
  • R93.811 - Abnormal radiologic findings on dx imaging of right testicle
  • R93.812 - Abnormal radiologic findings on dx imaging of left testicle
  • R93.813 - Abnormal radlgc findings on dx imaging of testicles, bi
  • R93.819 - Abnormal radiologic findings on dx imaging of unsp testicle
  • R93.89 - Abnormal findings on dx imaging of oth body structures

Code Classification
  • Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings, not elsewhere classified (R00–R99)
    • Abnormal findings on diagnostic imaging and in function studies, without diagnosis (R90-R94)
      • Abnormal findings on diagnostic imaging of body structures (R93)

Information for Medical Professionals

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.

ICD-10 Footnotes

General Equivalence Map Definitions
The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

  • Approximate Flag - The approximate flag is on, indicating that the relationship between the code in the source system and the code in the target system is an approximate equivalent.
  • No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system.
  • Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.

Present on Admission
The Present on Admission (POA) indicator is used for diagnosis codes included in claims involving inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals. POA indicators must be reported to CMS on each claim to facilitate the grouping of diagnoses codes into the proper Diagnostic Related Groups (DRG). CMS publishes a listing of specific diagnosis codes that are exempt from the POA reporting requirement.
