    Default ultrasound/penis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for a code to bill an ultrasound that was completed for a a small subcutaneous mass on the penis. Can someone help me with this? The codes that I located were 76870 Ultrasound, scrotum and contents and 93980. Please help.

    According to the Fall issue of the AMA/ACR Clinical Examples in Radiology, the codes for soft tissues are as follows:

    axilla- 76880
    upper back- 76604
    lower back- 76705
    abdominal wall- 76705
    groin- 76880
    penis- 76857

    Of course the 76880 has changed!

    Here is a link to the RBMA that also has info.... http://www.rbma.org/Products_and_Res...ft_Tissue.aspx
