Is there a code for the injection of a radiopharmaceutical when no scan is done (or intended)?
There are two such codes:
|38792||Injection procedure; radioactive tracer for identification of sentinel node|
|78808||Injection procedure for radiopharmaceutical localiztaion by non-imaging probe study, intravenous (e.g., parathyroid adenoma)|
Assign code 38792 if the injection is for sentinel node localization and 78808 when it is for probe localization of other issues (such as adenoma).
