    Yes you can code it as a cta chest since it states that 3d recons were done. It needs to state this to be coded as a cta chest.

    Lightbulb CTA info sources
    I was just researching this myself and found info on the ACR website:

    http://www.acr.org/Hidden/Economics/...aphyDoc10.aspx

    If you have a CPT 2009 Professional Edition it references CPT Assistant July 2001 along with several other CPT Assistant articles.

    Hope that helps.
