Use CPT code 76815 for ultrasound of pregnant uterus, real time with image documentation, limited for measurement of fetal heart beat, placental location, fetal position and or qualitative amniotic fluid volume, one or more fetuses, if the provider performs a limited ultrasound of the pregnant uterus to examine only certain parameters.
Use CPT code 76811 for Ultrasound, pregnant uterus, real time with image documentation, fetal and maternal evaluation plus detailed fetal anatomic examination, transabdominal approach; single or first gestation.
