    One of our offices managers is questioning charging more time for the use of a power injector during a MRI of the Abdomen. We have never used them before so I need as much info as you can give me as far as charges go. I do have complete info on what it is and what it does but none of time length of use or which CPT codes to use for it. Thanks ahead!

    IMO, the use of a contrast power injector is part of the MRI with Contrast. A power injector is usually used for contrast delivery.
