The American College of Radiology (ACR®) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) advisors, led by Mark Alson, MD, a coalition of radiology specialty societies and College staff, attended the American Medical Association 2019 CPT Editorial Panel meeting in Seattle Sept. 26–Sept. 28. It was the last of three meetings to update codes for the 2021 CPT code cycle.
The ACR co-sponsored one code proposal application with the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) to revise the code descriptor for 74425, Urography, antegrade (pyelostogram, nephrostogram, loopogram), radiological supervision and interpretation. See the upcoming September/October 2019 ACR Radiology Coding Source for a list of all approved 2020 CPT codes.
