Homework Help: billing and coding

Posted by Mindy on Monday, December 12, 2011 at 2:20pm.

An 18-year-old male presents to the ED following a serious motor vehicle accident. Based on his injuries and symptoms, the ED physician orders a CT of the abdomen and pelvis to assess any possible injuries. He accompanies the patient to the radiology department and discusses the findings with the radiologist as they became available. Based on a preliminary review of the findings, the radiologist suggests the use of IV contrast for the pelvic CT so suspected findings can be confirmed. The ED physician concurs and IV contrast is administered and additional pelvic images are obtained. The radiologist supervises the process of providing the CT and provides a dictated report of his interpretation and findings. Which CPT® code(s) should the radiologist report?
A. 74150, 72194

B. 74176, 72193

C. 74177

D. 74178
