CPT Code for Bone Scan

Any time a person senses something is different about any body part they should consult a physician immediately. Skeletal pain is not uncommon regardless of what age and a simple procedure can determine what course of action to take. Here are 3 things to know in preparation for getting your CPT Code for Bone Scan.

It is important to let your doctor know if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have taken any Barium or Bismuth medicines or had a Barium X-ray in the last 4 days. Any of those situations can alter the results and potentially give false positives in the final readings. Answer all questions about medications as truthfully as possible.

Fluids are important for ordinary good health but it is required to drink extra liquids especially after taking the tracer injection. There is a typical wait period after the injection of 1 to 3 hours so bring something to read or do to help past the time. In some cases, a picture is taken during the injection, then right after, and the final taken 3 to 5 hours afterward.

The procedure requires you to lay on a table that passes through a machine with two Gamma cameras rotating around you. Be sure to mention it to the professionals if you are claustrophobic so they can provide assistance in helping you relax. And it is important to be very still while the machine continues getting pictures of the area in question.

There are a number of reasons to have this procedure done and they include, but are not limited to, microscopic bone fractures, areas of skeletal infection and potential cancer. The entire test is really very simple and requires nothing of you but to lay there until it is completed. And as always, ask your physician or medical assistant for a complete list of what you are to do in getting ready for this test.
