Thread: Fiducial Markers Placement Breast

  1. #1

    Default Fiducial Markers Placement Breast

    AAPC: Back to School
    I work for a General Surgeon and he placed fiducial markers in the breast of a patient seen in our office. Are there any CPT codes to cover this? I can find one for prostate but I haven't found anything for breast. Thanks for any help you can give me!

    If used following partial mastectomy we use 19296. If a button or tube type see 19298. Hope this helps

    We use 19296 for balloon catheter placement. 19298 is also for catheter placement. Sounds more like you are just putting in a marker, so I would use 19295 clip placement, if done with another procedure.
