18/04/2018 N/A N/A Quantitative Sensory Testing New Code Published Improves coding structure and adds clarityQST tests are used for non-invasive assessment and quantification of sensory nerve function in patients with symptoms of or the potential for neurological damage or disease. Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) is a valuable method for diagnosing peripheral nervous system disorders including chronic pain and pain related to various diseases such as Diabetes and CRPS. QST essentially determines the sensation and pain thresholds for cold and warm temperatures and the vibration sensation threshold by stimulating the skin and comparing the results to normative values built in the software. When the stimulus activates stimuli-specific receptors; the nerve fibres that innervate the receptors communicate the stimuli's message to the central nervous system where feeling occurs. QST tests can be conducted on the limbs however hands and feet are the most common as it is testing for peripheral nervous disorders.
07/03/2018 AU030 N/A Follow up session with vestibular testing New Code Published Improves coding structure and adds clarityWe feel that there is a need for these codes as they follow the same pattern as AU001 and AU002 for audiology testing and still fit within the Audiology diagnostic chapter.
