Thread: Gastric Tonometry

    Default Gastric Tonometry

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone been billing for Gastric Tonometry. Which is the measurement of CO2 in the stomach in order to diagnosis possible blockage in the abdominal arteries. Our Vascular Surgeon questioned if there is a CPT for this type of procedure.

    Thank you!

    Our system gave me 91020 gastric motility studies (manometric) but please see if anyone agrees with this.
