Question:

Myocardial perfusion scan code 78452 includes multiple studies. Does this have to be rest and stress? What about prone studies?

Answer:

Prone is not considered a separate study when coding myocardial perfusion scans 78452 or 78454. It is considered additional imaging. The three types of studies considered for myocardial perfusion billing are rest, stress, and redistribution.
