Question:

Is it appropriate to bill for a 3D post-processing charge (76377) for the computer-aided detection (CAD) portion of the prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) since the computer generates a 3-D model to calculate perfusion curves?

Answer:

There is no specific code for CAD for prostate MRI. You would report unlisted code 76498. The 3D post-processing would be included in the CAD code and not separately billed as 76377.
