    Typically, the term "rotor" study is in reference to testing to see if an implanted infusion pump is functioning by injecting contrast into the pump via the side port and watch tje contrast flow via fluoroscopy for any obstructions, breaks in the system, etc.

    Unfortunately, there currently isn't a CPT code for the injection into the side port of the pump. Most use an unlisted procedure code to report this service, while a few other providers include it into any E/M service performed that day.
