The National Commission of Mammography of the Brazilian College of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (CBR), Brazilian Society of Mastology (SBM) and the Brazilian Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics Associations (Febrasgo) advises that breast evaluation by ultrasound should include breasts and breasts. underarms, according to the orientation of the new BI-RADS® (5th edition, 2013).
We recommend using the code in table CBHPM (or similar) for breasts (4.09.01.11-4 - US Breasts) and armpits (4.09.01.21-1 - US Surface structures - cervical or armpits or muscle or tendon). If the requesting physician has requested both procedures, both should be charged, as this is not just one procedure.
