CPT® 2016: Neuro-interventional Coding
Part 3: Understand the changes affecting neuro-interventional procedures.
For 2016, the biggest CPT® coding changes affecting interventional radiology occur within the subspecialties of urinary, biliary, and
neurologic intervention. In March, we covered urinary intervention and in April we covered percutaneous biliary interventional coding. This month, we’ll finish our series by focusing on transcatheter neuro-interventions and describing three new codes for 2016.

April 2015 Q & A
We routinely perform pre-procedure embolization and roadmapping prior to the SIRTeX procedure. When the GDA is embolized we are using CPT code 37242 for the embolization. Can we bill the pre-procedure roadmapping for the SIRTeX at the same time as the GDA embolization? From report: IMPRESSION: Arterial mapping and coil embolization as described above for preprocedure SIRTeX SIR-Spheres selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT).
