We were wondering which CPT® code to use for a volumetric computerized tomography (CT) scan of the heart to confirm pacemaker device placement, using contrast. We perform these CT scans after the device implant to check for lead placement/positioning when there have been capture issues.
It sounds like you would assign the following code:
|75572||Computed tomography, heart, with contrast material, for evaluation of cardiac structure and morphology (including 3D image postprocessing, assessment of cardiac function, and evaluation of venous structures, if performed)|
