Scalp contusion question
I need clarification on coding a scalp contusion.  I have been using subgeal but I am pretty sure I'm wrong....   Simple scalp contusion with not other brain injuries.

Also, when our MD's state CHI with no loc,  would that be a 'head injury NFS involving headache only' and not concussion?

110402 AIS-05 This is a scalp contusion. Subgaleal is ALSO coded w this. It is separated by a semi-colon, indicating that it is either/or
S00.03XA ICD10 Is the scalp contusion
