Myocardial Perfusion imaging studies are reported using CPT codes 78451, 78452, 78453 and 78454 you would add the code for the type of isotope used.

Cardiolite - A9500 Technetium Tc-99m, Sestamibi, diagnostic, per study dose,
Myoview - A9502 Technetium Tc 99m tetrofosmin, diagnostic, per study dose,
Thallium - A9505 Thallous Chloride TL-201, diagnostic, per mCi
