Video Instruction Using the CPT Book
CPT coding is not as cut and dry as ICD-10. The index is a great reference but not an end-all be-all type of directive. The symbols used in the cpt book are described in the publication. Here is a quick video demonstrating the general layout of the book including where to find general guidelines, at the beginning of each section, how to use the index, and how to find the full description of the code. Best of luck!
