ACR Presents Code Proposals at the May 2023 CPT Editorial Panel Meeting

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) and several specialty societies submitted code change proposals at the May 2023 American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedure Terminology (CPT®) Editorial Panel meeting. The hybrid meeting was the second of three meetings to update codes for the 2025 CPT code cycle.

ACR partnered with the Radiological Society of North America, American Roentgen Ray Society, Association of University Radiologists, Society of Interventional Radiology and the American Society of Neuroradiology to present code proposals requesting CPT codes for transcranial doppler and MRI-monitored transurethral ultrasound ablation. If approved, the new codes will be available Jan. 1, 2025.

For a list of anticipated radiology code changes for 2024, refer to the CPT 2024 Anticipated Code Changes. Awareness of anticipated 2024 codes will provide time to consider changes needed to update contracts for the coming year. The list of the new codes and descriptors pertinent to radiology will be available on the CPT and ICD-10 Coding Resources website in October.
