Clinical Evaluation of Lymph Nodes


**Note 1**: Code the method used to determine clinically positive regional lymph nodes. Code the type of clinical assessment, whether pathologic assessment of nodes was performed with either negative or positive results. **Note 2**: Use code 000 if physical or radiologic examination is documented with no statement of positive nodal involvement. Use code 010 or 020 if the results of either physical or radiologic examination are positive, whether or not the results of the other examination are documented. Use code 997 if documentation indicates either type of examination was performed but no results are available. Use code 999 if no documentation of physical or radiologic examination is available in the medical record.
