Prostate biopsy is the process of extract tissue sample from prostate gland. In this process, a fine and thin needle is inserted through rectum to the prostate gland and a small tissue sample of prostate is removed. This process takes almost 10 minutes with mild discomfort.


    MRI Fusion Prostate Biopsy CPT Code


    MRI fusion prostate biopsy is performed by inserting an ultrasound probe. This probe can be inserted by biopsy gun or spring driven needle core biopsy device. The probe is of the size of a finger. The CPT code used for this process is 76942.

    Transrectal Ultrasound Guided Prostate Biopsy CPT Code


    Trans rectalultrasound guided prostate biopsy can be performed by passing a thin, fine needling through rectum to the prostate gland under the guidance of ultrasound waves. This process can cause very little discomfort. The CPT code used for this process is 76872.

    Transperineal Prostate Biopsy CPT Code


    Transperineal prostate biopsy can be performed under the general anesthesia. This biopsy involves the perineum (part of skin between anus and scrotum). The skin of perineum is used for the insertion of needle and the sample can be taken easily. The CPT code used for this process is 55700.

    Fusion Prostate Biopsy CPT Code


    Fusion prostate biopsy involves the fusion of MRI and Ultrasound radiations. First MRI is performed to get the images, and then according to these images, biopsy is performed under ultrasound guidance. The CPT code used for this fusion process is 76942.

    Transrectal Ultrasound Prostate Biopsy CPT Code


    Trans rectal ultrasound prostate biopsy involves ultrasound waves or radiations to perform biopsy. A thin, fine needle is injected through rectum to the prostate gland and a tissue sample is removed. This process not painful but little discomfort can be experienced. CPT code for this process is 76872.

    MRI Ultrasound Fusion Prostate Biopsy CPT Code


    MRI and ultrasound both the techniques when used in prostate biopsy this process is termed as MRI ultrasound fusion prostate biopsy. First, MRI is performed for the clear images, and then biopsy is performed with ultrasound guidance. The CPT code used is 76942.
