Thread: ? code for Renal CT/CT of kidneys

    Question ? code for Renal CT/CT of kidneys

    AAPC: Back to School
    Looking for a code for a 3-phase renal CT/CT of kidneys, but there seems to be no specific code for this -- does anyone know -- would it fall under CT of abdomen?

    This would fall under CT Abd w/ & w/o contrast, if the pelvis is included (which most of the time it is with these studies) be sure to use the proper CT code 74178 abdomen and pelvis w/ & w/o

    code will be based on your documentation
    if only bilateral kidneys are documented -76380
    if the study includes all the abdominal organs-74150
    if pelvic organs are also documented-74176
