2015 CPT changes for myelography procedures


Two myelogram injection codes have been revised and four new comprehensive codes have been established for myelogram contrast injection and imaging.

For the injection codes, the description of 61055 has been changed and the words "(eg, c1-c2)"have been removed, presumably to eliminate redundancy.

Also the description of 62284 was changed from "injection ....spinal" to "injection....lumbar
