ICD-10-CM Code R93.3
Abnormal findings on diagnostic imaging of other parts of digestive tract
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
R93.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of abnormal findings on diagnostic imaging of other parts of digestive tract. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code R933 is used to code Pneumatosis intestinalis
Pneumatosis intestinalis (also called intestinal pneumatosis, pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis, or pneumatosis coli) is pneumatosis of an intestine, that is, gas cysts in the bowel wall. As a radiological sign it is highly suggestive for necrotizing enterocolitis. This is in contrast to gas in the intestinal lumen (which is relieved by flatulence). In newborns, pneumatosis intestinalis is considered diagnostic for necrotizing enterocolitis, and the air is produced by bacteria in the bowel wall. The pathogenesis of pneumatosis intestinalis is poorly understood and is likely multifactorial. PI itself is not a disease, but rather a clinical sign. In some cases, PI is an incidental finding, whereas in others, it portends a life-threatening intra-abdominal condition.
