Serum Chromogranin A (CgA) Lab Value
- Note 1: Chromogranins are a family of proteins in secretory granules found throughout the neuroendocrine system. Serum Chromagranin A (CgA) has been shown to be a useful marker for neuroendocrine tumors.
- Note 2: Record, to the nearest nanogram/milliliter (ng/ml), the highest CgA lab value documented in the medical record prior to treatment. For example, apretreatment CgA of 400 ng/ml would be recorded as 400.
- Note 3: Code 000 is reserved for exactly 0 ng/ml (no measurable amount of CgA). Do not round tiny values down to 0 ng/ml; any measured value less than or equal to 1 ng/ml should be coded 001. For code 001, also round 1.1 1.4 ng/ml down to 1 ng/ml. For codes 002 980, round values to the nearest nanogram/milliliter.
- Note 4: Use code 997 if there is no actual pre-treatment CgA lab value available but an interpretation of the test result is stated.
|000||0 nanogram/milliliter (ng/ml), exactly|
|001||1 or less ng/ml; stated as less than 1 ng/ml with no exact value|
|002-979||2 - 979 ng/mL|
(Exact value in ng/ml)
|980||980 or greater ng/mL|
|988||Not applicable: Information not collected for this case|
(If this information is required by your standard setter, use of code 988 may result in an edit error.)
|997||Test ordered, results not in chart|
|998||Test not done (test was not ordered and was not performed)|
|999||Unknown or no information|
Not documented in patient record
