Can I report 78429 when PET and CT are performed on separate systems and when software fusion is utilized for performing anatomic localization?
Do not use this code when PET and CT are performed on separate systems and software (software fusion) is utilized to perform anatomic localization. Instead, use UPC 78499 for imaging fusion.
