CPT Code For Hida Scan

HIDA is abbreviated as Hepatobiliary IminoDiacetic Acid. HIDA scan is a diagnostic procedure performed for the evaluation of gall bladder, liver and bile ducts. The other names of HIDA scan are Hepatobiliary scintigraphy and cholescintigraphy. In this procedure, a radioactive tracer is injected inside the vein of arm. This tracer moves with the blood throughout body and reaches to liver and bile duct. This tracer is scanned with a nuclear medicine tracer having gamma camera. The computer images are clear because of the tracer element used. It can also be performed with ultrasound and X-ray.

CPT Code For Hida Scan

CPT Code For Nuclear Medicine Hida Scan


In nuclear medicine HIDA scan, the tracer is injected inside the vein of arm and then the images are obtained through nuclear medicine tracer device. It contains gamma camera which shows clear computer images. It is also known as Hepatobiliary scan. The CPT code is 78226.

CPT Code For Nm Hida Scan With Ejection Fraction

NM HIDA scan with ejection fraction is the evaluation of bile secretion from the liver. The volume of bile is checked with nuclear medicine HIDA scan. This procedure involves nuclear medicine tester for clear computer imaging. The CPT codes for this procedure are78226 and 78227.

CPT Code For Nm Hida Scan With CCK

NM HIDA scan with CCK (cholecystokinin) shows if there is any blockage in the bile duct or gall bladder. The procedure involves a tracer injecting in the arm of patient and nuclear medicine tracer shows the imaging on computer screen. The CPT code is 78226.

CPT Code For Hida Scan Without Ejection Fraction

The HIDA scan without ejection fraction involves the evaluation of liver and gall bladder excluding the ejection volume of bile. The procedure is same which includes injecting tracer element to vein and evaluating images on computer screen. This procedure is performed under the CPT code 78226.

CPT Code For Hida Scan With Contrast

In HIDA scan with contrast, a contrast material i.e. radioactive material named Hydroxy IminoDiacetic Acid (HIDA) is injected into the blood stream. This tracer element shows the clear inside imaging of liver, bile duct and gall bladder. The CPT code for this procedure is 78226.

CPT Code For Hida Scan Of Gallbladder

The procedure involves injection of HIDA as a tracer element into the vein of arm. This tracer element shows the Imaging of gall bladder showing if there is any abnormality or blockage. This procedure is performed under the CPT code 78223.
