What CPT code do we use when our physician performs an SI joint injection using ultrasound guidance? CPT code 27096 states with fluoroscopy or CT guidance.
CPT instructs to report CPT code 20552 for unilateral or bilateral SI joint injections if CT or Fluoroscopic imaging is not used. CPT code 76942, for the ultrasound guidance, may be reported if the documentation requirements are met.
