CPT Code For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy With Cholangiogram


Cholangiogram is the procedure including X-ray imaging with contrast material.

The CPT code for this combo procedure is 47563.

CPT Code For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy With Intraoperative Cholangiogram

Intraoperative Cholangiogram is the special X-ray with contrast material performed during the surgical procedure. It is used during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal) for detailed imaging and bile secretion evaluation and exploration. The CPT code for this procedure is 47564.

CPT Code For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy With IOC

IOC is abbreviated as intraoperative Cholangiogram which is performed during the surgical gall bladder removal procedure. The special X-rays help to evaluate and explore bile ducts and bile secretion to small intestine during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal). The CPT code for this is 47564.

CPT Code For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy With Firefly
