Thread: CPT code for CT of Kidney's?

  1. #1

    Cool CPT code for CT of Kidney's?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm assuming that for a CT of kidney's, without then with contrast, you would use the code for CT of the abdomin? Is that right? Or is there another code to use. Don't see one specifically for the renal system. Thanks for your help!

    you would use the CT ABd w/ & w/o code

    Unlike U/S where you can image just one organ CT is unable to single out organs in a region therefore there are no limited imaging codes for intra-abdominal organs
