CPT Code For Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound is a diagnostic technique which is performed to screen the tumors and other abnormalities of breast. High frequency sound waves are used for the imaging purpose. These sound waves show clear inside images of breast abnormalities and tumors. Breast ultrasound is safe for pregnant women and breast feeding mothers because it does not use harmful radiations. The patient is allowed to lie on her back and a conductor gel is applied all over the breast. A device named transducer is rolled over the breast which transfers high frequency sound waves. These waves show imaging on the screen.

Bilateral breast ultrasound means ultrasound procedure is performed on both the breasts. Patient lie down on bed and a conductor gel is applied for easy movement of transducer over it. The sound waves transfer and show imaging on computer. The CPT code is 76641.

CPT Code For Breast Ultrasound With Spot Compression

Spot compression breast ultrasound is performed by compression of a specific spot in breast. The procedure involves a transducer sending images to the computer and shows clear internal imaging on screen. This verifies the presence of tumor in breast. The CPT code is 76641.

CPT Code For Breast Ultrasound Guided Biopsy

Breast biopsy is the next level diagnostic test for the verification of type of cancer. This can be carried out under the guidance of ultrasound. The ultrasound waves shows where the lump is exactly present and then biopsy needle is inserted to take sample. CPT ode for this is 19083.

CPT Code For Breast Ultrasound Screening
