We are performing cardiac flow reserve (CFR) with cardiac PET/CT. Is this reimbursable and, if so, what code would I assign for this?
Unfortunately, there is no specific code for CFR. You would assign code 78492 for the cardiac PET/CT, and then unlisted code 78499 for performance of the flow reserve study.
|78492||Myocardial imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), perfusion; multiple studies at rest and/or stress|
|78499||Unlisted cardiovascular procedure, diagnostic nuclear medicine|
