Here is an article from the American College of Surgeons on SLNHi,
If we are injection the blue dye to excise a sentinnel lymph node what code would I use.
I have also used 37892.
For 2011 there is a new code of 38900.
Can anyone tell me the difference? Is there any CPT articles?
If the physician uses Tc-99M (Technetium 99-M), then the localization is done with a radioactive tracer. The code is 38972. If the physician uses Lymphazurin dye, the code is 38900 (non-radioactive).Hi all
I am new to coding these and having a hard time understanding the difference between these two codes I tried to click on the link with the article but it was expired can someone repost it or perhaps email me the article?
