ct and cta coding

  1. Default ct and cta coding
    New Call-to-action
    I am trying to learn how to code these. I need help. What is the difference between the two? And anything else you can tell me that is helpful. Cta of heart - aorta etc.


  2. #2
    A CT is without contrast with quantitive eval of coronary calcium (75571)
    A CTA is not just the heart but the coronary arteries and bypass grafts (if present) and with contrast, including 3D image postprocessing (75574)

    Hope this helps...
