Thread: Resting only Nuclear Scan

    Default Resting only Nuclear Scan

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a patient has a Resting only Nuclear Scan, would it be the 78451 instead of the 78452? Our Nuclear person images twice so she seems to think that it should be the 78452 because that's a multiple study. I'm reading it to mean that the multiple study is if it's a study at rest and stress. What are your thoughts??
