Radiology Question for the Week of March 27, 2017

Posted on Posted in Question of the Week, Radiology

Question:

I have been assigning the following codes for contrast-enhanced liver ultrasound:
76705       Ultrasound, abdominal, real time with image documentation; limited (e.g., single organ, quadrant, follow-up)
Q9950      Injection, perflexane lipid microspheres, per ml
However, I was just told that I should be reporting C9744 (ultrasound, abdominal, with contrast) instead. Is this correct?

Question:

In the 2/13/17 question you said 77063 could be billed with G0202 because it was digital and not with 77067 because it was analog. Those descriptions are no longer part of the code. I have been told by multiple sources to use CPT 77063 for ALL screening mammograms except Medicare which is the G0202 until 2018. Is this not correct?
