We are starting to perform pediatric echocardiograms, and I was wondering if the CPT® codes are the same for children as they are for adults. We use CPT code 93306 for adult echos; is that appropriate for pediatric exams as well?
If you are doing echocardiograms for non-congenital conditions or suspected but not found congenital conditions, then it is correct to assign the following code:
|93306||Echocardiography, transthoracic, real-time with image documentation (2D), includes M-mode recording, when performed, complete, with spectral Doppler echocardiography, and with color flow Doppler echocardiography|
