2015 new CPT Codes for RADIATION THERAPY


Radiation therapy codes underwent significant changes for 2015. Teletherapy isodose planning and brachytherapy codes now include the basic dosimetry calculation and IMRT codes now include guidance and tracking. Also radiation treatment delivery codes were deleted in 2015.

77306  Teletherapy isodose plan; simple (1 or 2 unmodified ports directed to a single area of interest), includes basic dosimetry calculation(s)

77307  Teletherapy isodose plan; complex (multiple treatment areas, tangential ports, the use of wedges, blocking, rotational beam, or special beam considerations), includes basic dosimetry calculation(s)

77316  Brachytherapy isodose plan; simple (calculation[s] made from 1 to 4 sources, or remote afterloading brachytherapy, 1 channel), includes basic dosimetry calculation(s)

77317  Brachytherapy isodose plan; intermediate (calculation[s] made from 5 to 10 sources, or remote afterloading brachytherapy, 2-12 channels), includes basic dosimetry calculation(s)

77318  Brachytherapy isodose plan; complex (calculation[s] made from over 10 sources, or remote afterloading brachytherapy, over 12 channels), includes basic dosimetry calculation(s)

77385  Intensity modulated radiation treatment delivery (IMRT), includes guidance and tracking, when performed; simple

77386  Intensity modulated radiation treatment delivery (IMRT), includes guidance and tracking, when performed; complex

77387  Guidance for localization of target volume for delivery of radiation treatment delivery, includes intrafraction tracking, when performed
