Reader Question:

Compare +0399T to +93320 for Payers

Question: Is there an existing CPT® code that’s a good comparison code when I report +0399T for myocardial strain imaging?

Answer: One option is +93320 (Doppler echocardiography, pulsed wave and/or continuous wave with spectral display [List separately in addition to codes for echocardiographic imaging]; complete).

The American Society of Echocardiography suggests this Doppler code as a comparison code for +0399T (Myocardial strain imaging [quantitative assessment of myocardial mechanics using image-based analysis of local myocardial dynamics] [List separately in addition to code for primary procedure]) in the Strain Code Toolkit available at under the header Advocacy News.
