DESCRIPTION: This field contains a number (0-99) to indicate to the various workload report routines how many times to multiply the weighted work units associated with the AMIS code. The weight for each AMIS code is stored in the
'MAJOR RAD/NUC MED AMIS CODE' file.
Most multipliers will be 1. However, there are some that are greater than 1. For example, the procedure called 'UPPER GI + SMALL BOWEL' has the AMIS code 9-GASTROINTESTINAL which has a weight of 6 work units. But, the
AMIS multiplier is 2. Therefore on the workload reports, the site will get credit for 12 weighted work units each time it is performed.
Radiology Central Office has directed that the weighted work unit for Ultrasound procedures involving multiple organs in the same visit can be counted only once if the organs are located close to each other. (i.e. Liver
