Laboratory Coding: Cardiac Enzymes (February 1998)
February 1998 pages 1-4 Laboratory Coding: Cardiac Enzymes Researchers have correlated serum levels of certain enzymes, subforms of enzymes (isoenzymes), and proteins with specific diseases/disorders. For example, serum proteins, specifically enzymes, have become the major determinant by which acute myocardial infarction (MI) is diagnosed or excluded. CPT codes 82550, 82552, 82553, 82554, 83615, 83625, 83874, 84484, and 84512 were established to reflect current techniques for detecting biochemical markers of acute MI. The following laboratory procedures, although commonly used in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction or minor myocardial injury, do not limit or restrict the reporting of other laboratory...
