“Some changes are minor revisions to clarify code use and consistency with terminology for code descriptions,” she stated. “There are new combination codes to report the surgical service and radiology supervision and interpretation. The sections of CPT with the most code changes are integumentary, respiratory, cardiovascular, and laboratory and pathology.”
