ASNC Model Coverage Policy for SPECT MPI (PDF)
This document examines a variety of clinical indications and symptoms with which a common patient would present and supports the use of performing SPECT MPI by cross-referencing the indication with the multi-society appropriate use criteria for radionuclide studies developed by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and ASNC in 2005, and subsequently revised in 2009. In addition, the use of SPECT MPI in patients with the indications delineated in the policy is supported by references to an abundance of literature which supports the use of this study in the provided scenarios. Finally, the document provides ICD-9 codes which correlate to each of the indications to demonstrate what codes, or range of codes, are appropriate for each clinical indication.
