Was Imaging used for guidance What type of imaging Ultrasound Fluoroscopic guidance CT Guidance MR Guidance Fine Needle Aspiration

Fine needle aspiration (FNA): material is aspirated with a fine needle and the cells are examined cytologically Core needle biopsy: performed with a large bore needle to obtain a core sample of tissue for histopathologic evaluation Fine Needle Aspiration Imaging procedures may not be reported separately with fine needle aspiration

E.g., 76942, 77002, 77012, 77021 Cytologic evaluation may be reported with codes 88172, 88173, 88177 Fine Needle Aspiration When more than one FNA biopsy is performed on separate lesions at the same session, same day, same imaging modality, use the appropriate imaging modality add-on code for the second and subsequent lesion(s) Modifier 59 is not necessary

Fine Needle Aspiration When more than one FNA biopsy is performed on separate lesions, same session, same day, using different imaging modalities, report the corresponding primary code with modifier 59 for each additional imaging modality and corresponding add-on codes for subsequent lesions sampled Lesions may be ipsilateral or contralateral to each other Lesions may be in the same or different organs or structures Fine needle Aspiration

When fine needle aspiration biopsy and core needle biopsy both are performed on the same lesion, same session, same day using the same type of imaging guidance, do not separately report the imaging guidance for the core needle biopsy Fine Needle Aspiration When FNA biopsy is performed on one lesion and core needle biopsy is performed on a separate lesion, same session, same day using the same type of imaging guidance, both the core needle biopsy and the imaging guidance for the core needle biopsy may be reported separately with modifier 59 Fine Needle Aspiration

When FNA biopsy is performed on one lesion and core needle biopsy is performed on a separate lesion, same session, same day using different types of imaging guidance, both the core needle biopsy and the imaging guidance for the core needle biopsy may be reported with modifier 59 Fine Needle Aspiration 10004 should be used in conjunction with 10021 10021: Fine needle aspiration biopsy, without imaging guidance; first lesion

10004: each additional lesion Fine needle Aspiration 10006 should be used in conjunction with 10005 10005: Fine needle aspiration biopsy, including ultrasound guidance; first lesion 10006: each additional lesion Fine needle Aspiration

Fine Needle Aspiration For percutaneous image-guided fluid collection drainage by catheter of soft tissue (e.g., extremity, abdominal wall, neck), use CPT code 10030 For percutaneous needle biopsy other than fine needle aspiration, see 19081 19086 for breast, 20206 for muscle, 32400 for pleura, 32405 for lung or mediastinum, 42400 for salivary gland, 47000 for liver, 48102 for pancreas, 49180 for abdominal or retroperitoneal mass, 50200 for kidney, 54500 for testis, 54800 for epididymis, 60100 for thyroid, 62267 for nucleus pulposus, intervertebral disc, or paravertebral tissue, 62269 for spinal cord

Skin Biopsies The category of skin biopsies has been expanded to show the type of biopsy performed Tangential Punch

Excisional The use of a biopsy procedure code (e.g., 11102, 11103, 11104, 11105, 11106, 11107) indicates that the procedure to obtain tissue solely for diagnostic histopathologic examination was performed independently or was unrelated or distinct from other procedure/services provided at that time Skin Biopsies Biopsies performed on different lesions or different sites on the same date of service may be reported separately, as they are not considered components of other procedures

During certain surgical procedures in the integumentary system, such as excision, destruction, or shave removals the removed tissue is often submitted for pathologic examination The obtaining of tissue for pathology during the course of these procedures is a routine component of such procedures. Not considered a separate biopsy procedure and is not separately reported. Skin biopsies Partial-thickness biopsies are those that sample a portion of the thickness of skin or mucous membrane and do not penetrate below the dermis or lamina propria

Full-thickness biopsies penetrate into tissue deep to the dermis or lamina propria into the subcutaneous or submucosal space Sampling of stratum corneum only, by any modality (e.g., skin scraping, tape stripping) does not constitute a skin biopsy procedure and is not separately reportable Tangential biopsy Shave

Scoop Saucerize Curette Performed with a sharp blade, such as a flexible biopsy blade, obliquely oriented scalpel or curette to remove a sample of epidermal tissue with or without portions of underlying dermis

The intent of a tangential biopsy (11102, 11103) is to obtain a tissue sample from a lesion for the purpose of diagnostic pathologic examination Tangential Biopsy A tangential biopsy technique is not considered an excision May be represented by a superficial sample and does not involve the full thickness of the dermis, so lesions technically could remain in the deeper layers of the dermis For therapeutic removal of epidermal or dermal lesion(s) using shave technique, see 11300 11313

A symptomatic lesion that rubs on waistbands or bras or any other reason why an elevated lesion is being completely removed with the shave technique, suggesting a therapeutic intent It is the responsibility of the physician or qualified health care professional performing the procedure to clearly indicate the purpose of the procedure Tangential biopsy 11102: Tangential biopsy of skin (e.g., shave, scoop, saucerize, curette; single lesion 11103: Each separate/additional lesion Punch Biopsy Requires a punch tool to remove a full-thickness cylindrical sample of skin

Intent is to obtain a cylindrical tissue sample of a cutaneous lesion for the purpose of diagnostic pathologic examination Simple closure of the defect is included in the service Manipulation of the biopsy defect to improve wound approximation is included in simple closure Punch biopsy

11104: Punch biopsy of skin (including simple closure, when performed); single lesion 11105; each separate/additional lesion Incisional Biopsy Requires the use of a sharp blade (not a punch tool) to remove a fullthickness sample of tissue via a vertical incision or wedge, penetrating deep to the dermis, into the subcutaneous space

The intent of an incisional biopsy is to obtain a full-thickness tissue sample of a skin lesion for the purpose of diagnostic pathologic examination May sample subcutaneous fat, such as those performed for the evaluation of panniculitis Simple closure is not separately reported Skin Biopsies Complete lesion excision should be considered an excision, not a biopsy

This is reported with 11400 11646 Margins would be excised as well Skin biopsies When multiple biopsy techniques are performed during the same encounter, only one primary lesion biopsy code (11102, 11104, 11106) is reported Additional biopsy codes should be selected based on the following convention

If multiple biopsies of the same type are performed, the primary code for that biopsy should be used along with the corresponding add-on code(s) If an incisional biopsy is performed, report 1110 in combination with a tangential (11103), punch (11105), or incisional biopsy (11107) for the additional biopsy procedures Skin biopsies If a punch biopsy is performed, report 11104 in combination with a tangential (11103), or punch (11105), for the additional biopsy procedures

If multiple tangential biopsies are performed, report tangential biopsy (11102) in combination with 11103 for the additional tangential biopsy procedures When two or more biopsies of the same technique (i.e., tangential, punch, or incisional) are performed on separate/additional lesions, use the appropriate add-on code (11103, 11105, 11107) to specify each additional biopsy. Skin Biopsies

When two or three different biopsy techniques (i.e., tangential, punch, or incisional) are performed to sample separate/additional lesions, select the appropriate biopsy code (11102, 11104, 11106) plus an additional add-on code (11103, 11105, 11107) for each additional biopsy performed Hierarchy: Incisional Punch

Tangential Skin Biopsy CPT code 11103 may be used in conjunction with 11102, 11104, and 11106 when different biopsy techniques are performed to sample separate/additional lesions for each type of biopsy technique used CPT code 11105 may be used in conjunction with 11104, 11106 when different biopsy techniques are performed to sample separate/additional lesions for each type of biopsy technique used
