Radiology Question for the Week of August 29, 2016

Question:

When ultrasound elastography is performed, we report category III code 0346T. Is there a similar code for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) elastography?

Answer:

You would report code 76498—unlisted magnetic resonance procedure (e.g., diagnostic, interventional) —for the elastography, along with the appropriate body area MRI code.
