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).

This code was deleted in the 2019 ICD-10 code set with the code(s) listed below.
  • 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.

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.
