Coding for CT without contrast with quantitative evaluation of coronary calcium
Is there a CPT® code for PET/CT for calcium scoring?
There is not a PET/CT CPT code for calcium scoring. There is a CT CPT® code, but not a PET/CT CPT code. If calcium scoring is performed as part of a cardiac PET/CT, it would not be reported separately.
The code and full description are as follows:
75571 Computed tomography, heart, without contrast material, with quantitative evaluation of coronary calcium
