Cat Scan Coding

  1. Question Cat Scan Coding
    Medical Coding Books
    When you perform a CT of the abdomen and pelvis with contrast do you report BOTH codes 74160 and 72193?

    Likewise if you perform a chest/abdomen/pelvis do you report three seperate codes???

    Yes, to all of the above.

    Payers may have policies that pay something less than that, but it is correct coding to do so.
