Thread: MRI Pituitary

  1. #1

    Question MRI Pituitary

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can this be billed seperately from MRI Brain 70551?
    I'm thinking MRI Orbits, face, and or neck 70540 as we need to do a seperate scan just for the pituitary.

    I received a response from someone who specializes in MRI's... If anyone was interested in this... it's still just an MRI of the Brain 70551, however it can be upcoded with a 22 modifier for attention to the pituitary. Any other suggestions?? HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!
