2018 Radiology CPT Updates

Each year the American Medical Association’s CPT-4 code manual is revised to delete codes and/or guidelines, and to add or revise codes to reflect current technologies, techniques, and services. As a service to our radiology clients, APS Medical Billing has summarized those changes to facilitate accurate reporting of the affected services as of January 1, 2018.

A number of new radiology CPT codes have been approved for implementation in 2018. Two of the big changes are to Chest and Abdominal X-ray coding. There have also been some changes in Interventional Radiology.

The below PDF outlines the changes made.  All new codes are highlighted in red and revised/deleted codes are noted.
