Carbohydrate Antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) Lab Value


**Note 1**: Carbohydrate Antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) is a tumor marker that has value in the management of certain malignancies. **Note 2**: Record to the nearest tenth in Units/milliliter (U/ml), the highest CA 19-9 lab value documented in the medical record prior to treatment. For example, code a pretreatment CA 19-9 value of 60 U/ml as 600. **Note 3**: Code 000 is reserved for exactly 0.0 U/ml (no measurable amount of CA 19 9). Do not round tiny values down to 0.0 U/ml; any measured value less than or equal to 0.1 U/ml should be coded 001. For code 001, also round 0.11-0.14 U/ml down to 0.1 U/ml. For codes 002-979, round values to the nearest tenth of a U/ml. **Note 4**: For an uncertain value, record the stated closest value. For example, code a value stated as "less than 0.5 U/ml" as 005.
