Thread: High resolution CT of chest?

  1. #1

    Default High resolution CT of chest?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've seen several reports where the doctor does a CT scan of the chest with contrast and then does a high resolution CT scan of the chest and gives measurements of each section of the chest that he does. Is there a difference in the coding or is it still 71260?

    Default CT of Chest

    High Resolution means "special images" which there is no charge for those.
    It could be 71250, 71260 or 71270.
