Thread: Radiology Section vs Medicine Section

    Question Radiology Section vs Medicine Section

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know the reasoning for codes like 93971 (Duplex scan of extremity veins including responses to compression and other maneuvers; unilateral or limited study) to be in the Medicine section of the CPT book and not in the Radiology section of the book? These codes really are radiology procedures correct? Thank you to anyone who can help.

    Red face Yes radiology codes

    Not sure why they are in the medicine section of the CPT but these are still radiology (done by ultrasound) codes.
