Coding for whole-body low-dose CT for multiple myeloma


What would be the appropriate CPT® code to use for a CT exam—whole body low dose CT for multiple myeloma? We believe it is necessary to use the unlisted CPT code of 76497. Is that correct?


Yes, the unlisted code would be reported as there is no code for whole body CT (or MRI). The code and complete description are:

76497 Unlisted computed tomography procedure (e.g., diagnostic, interventional)
