Q: What is the cpt code and modifier for injection procedure for identification of sentinel node with intradermal radioisotope injection for the staging of clinically negative axillae in a patient with
primary malignant neoplasm of the central portion of the right breast?
A: The CPT code is 38792 for an injection procedure; lymphangiography; for identification of sentinel node. [ [ The nuclear radiologist would report code 78195, which covers the entire imaging procedure, as well as the injection of the radionuclide, McKusick says. In addition, radiology coders may report the radiopharmaceutical isotope, if the practice has provided the material. According to CPT,
99214 is indicated for an ?office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, which requires at least two of these three key components: a detailed history, a detailed examination and medical decision making of moderate complexity.? ] ]
