Radiology Coding Survival Guide

Chapter 16: Spinal Canal (76800)

The Spinal Canal section has only one code:
 • 76800 —Ultrasound, spinal canal and contents.


According to the AMA's CPT® Assistant (April 1998), you should not report this code for each area of the spine. From a CPT® coding perspective, code 76800 includes the entire spinal canal.
