3D rotational angiogram?

Can anyone help with this? I have a congenital right heart cath with this 3D rotational angiogram. Not sure what code/s to use?

This is that portion of the report: ANGIOGRAPHY: A 3D rotational angiogram was done through the right internal jugular vein sheath with a 4-French pigtail catheter. This 3D rotational angiogram showed a widely patent cavo-pulmonary anastomosis. The pulmonary
to the left of the Glenn was widely open as well as the stented pulmonary artery. There was no evidence of thrombosis formation or discrete stenosis. The pulmonary artery distal to the stent is widely open as well. The transit time across the pulmonary capillary bed is normal as well as the pulmonary venous return in the levo phase of the injection. There is no evidence of
significant venovenous collaterals or washout of the contrast. This 3D angiogram shows the pertinent anatomy.


Any help would be appreciated!

  • I believe with these you can bill an additional code besides the cath code for the 3D rendering of images 76376-76377, depending on if the data was sent to an independent work station for postprocessing.

  • Thank you. Would I also code the 93568 or is that not appropriate with the 76376-77
  • It's my understanding that both would be coded. 93568 and the code for the 3D rendering.
