    Question Incompleted studies/ Myocardial Stress Test

    AAPC: Back to School
    Pt was unable to complete the Persantine stress test due to extreme sob, nausea, & fatigue. Do I bill this as a 78452 , with modifier 52, or is there another cpt code to use as an interrupted study ?

    Were the Myoview and Persantine doses given and was the patient in the camera? If yes, then bill for the doses given and the 78452-53. Also make sure a report is done saying the same. If not then bill only for the services rendered. Also making sure there is a report. That's what we do. Sometimes we only bill for the Myoview and Regadenoson.
