LCD Policy ID L35408 is for 3D Interpretation and Reporting of Imaging Studies. The limitation of the policy- CPT codes 76376 and 76377 may be considered medically unnecessary and denied if equivalent information obtained from the test has already been provided by another procedure (magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, angiography, etc.) or could be provided by a standard Computerized Tomography (CT) scan (two-dimensional) without reconstruction.
CPT code 76376 can be reported when 3D rendering is performed by a radiologist or a specially-trained technologist at the acquisition scanner. However, CPT code 76377 is reported when the 3D post-processing images are reconstructed on an independent workstation with concurrent physician supervision. In order to report CPT code 76377, the supervising physician must provide concurrent supervision.
