Coding and Payment for Cellvizio Optical Endomicroscopy

The Optical endomicroscopy (OE) procedure enables a physician to image the internal microstructures of tissues and to identify cells and vessels and their organization or architecture in vivo in real-time during an endoscopy procedure through the use of a dedicated Cellvizio probe.

Coding and Payment for Cellvizio Optical Endomicroscopy procedures in the esophagus or upper GI tract are reported with the American Medical Association established CPT codes 43206 and/or 43252.

Other optical endomicroscopy procedures are reported by using unlisted codes for specific clinical indications. OE procedures, when performed, are reported as separate and distinct procedures from the endoscopy procedure performed.
