Oftentimes computed tomography (CT) scans are performed on multiple anatomical areas (such as cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine). Can CPT® code 76377 be reported up to one time for each base imaging code?
When multiple contiguous area images are reconstructed into 3D, report this code only one time: 76377 (3D rendering with interpretation and reporting of CT, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, or other tomographic modality with image postprocessing under concurrent supervision; requiring image postprocessing on an independent workstation). If non-contiguous areas are reconstructed, code 76377 may be reported for each area.
