Is the use of an assessment code (e.g. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or N, B, P, S, M, A) without the wording of the assessment category (e.g. Negative, Benign, etc.) sufficient to satisfy the reporting requirement?
No. The wording of the assigned assessment category, chosen from one of the following; Negative, Benign, Probably Benign, Suspicious, Highly Suggestive of Malignancy, and Incomplete: Need additional imaging evaluation, must appear on the report.
