We are having a question as to the correct CPT code to use for ultrasound of the buttock - some information I am seeing is that some are using 76857 while others are using 76705 - which would be the correct code

Hello,

I use 76857 for ultrasound of the buttock.

I have found this list to be helpful:

https://www.rbma.org/CPT_Codes/

Please note, some of the codes on that link are outdated, but it helps as a starting point for body areas without specific CPT codes for ultrasound.

Us buttock is 76857

According to the ACR, Ultrasound Coding User's Guide (2016), soft tissue ultrasound is coded based on the region of the body:
Buttock 76857
