    Question CPT for MRI Complete Spine?
    Medical Coding Books
    What would someone code a complete MRI of the spine? I don't see anything that covers all three levels. Thanks for the help.

    I am still searching for this procedure code if anyone knows. I have posted on a few different forums and still haven't found one that comes close. Thanks again!

    Using without contrast as my example, I ran all three codes through encoderpro.com compliance editor and it came up with the following:

    72146
    72148-51
    72141-51
