Coding for a fluoroscopic sniff test (diaphragm fluoroscopy)
For a fluoroscopic sniff test, we assign CPT® code 76000. What would we report when a sniff test is done using ultrasound instead of fluoroscopy?
I would assign CPT code 76604 for this procedure.
The code and full description are:
76604 Ultrasound, chest (includes mediastinum), real time with image documentation
