3D terminology

  1. #1
    Default 3D terminology
    Medical Coding Books
    These are the terms our office recognizes as 3D terms.
    Maximum intensity pixel (MIP) reconstruction
    Volume-rendered images

    Can someone tell me if spiral acquisition is 3D? Or does anyone have any other terms that indicate 3D?

  2. Default
    The codes represent complex renderings including: shaded surface,
    volumetric rendering, quantitative analysis (segmental volumes and surgical planning) and maximum
    intensity projections (MIP).

    I know it has to state that the 3D is performed on a separate workstation.

    You can bill 76376 if 3D is performed on the same workstation.
    76377 is an idependent workstation.

    Does anyone know if spiral acquisition is also a 3D term?
