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.
