Reporting a nuclear medicine inflammatory process whole-body scan with indium

Q.

We performed a nuclear medicine inflammatory process whole-body scan with Indium 111. How do we report this procedure?  

A.

In 2019 this would have been coded 78806, but because CPT® codes 7880578807 were deleted and rolled into the 78800 series of codes, in 2020 this would be reported with code 78802. The code and complete description are:

78802 Radiopharmaceutical localization to tumor, inflammatory process or distribution of radiopharmaceutical agent(s) (includes vascular flow and blood pool imaging, when performed); planar, whole body, single day imaging
