    Default Mrcp

    MRCP is an MRI of the abdomen with special emphasis on the biliary ducts. This would be reported with the CPT code for MRI Abdomen further defined by the use of IV contrast.

    Suppose we do a MRI Abdomen and MRCP on the same day? I have found that most carriers do not recognize the S code.

    I think S8037 would be appropriate,but it also depends on the carrier..

    Per July 2009 Cpt Assistant:

    "When an MRCP study is performed, it is appropraite to report one of the MRI of the abdomen codes (74181, 74182, and 74183 depending on whether contrast is administered) and a three-demensional (3-D) reconstruction code. (76376 or 76377) These codes accurately describe the procedure performed. An MRCP study includes a standard MR of the abdomen, along with MIP (maximum intensity projection) images to better delineate the bile ducts."



    Hope this helps!
