CathWorks Receives CPT Code for Non-invasive FFRangio Measurements During PCI

System allows non-invasive, three-dimensional interpretation of fractional flow reserve to optimize intraprocedural therapy decisions

CathWorks Receives CPT Code for Non-invasive FFRangio Measurements During PCI

July 12, 2018 — CathWorks announced the approval of a new Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code 0523T for non-invasive, 3-D FFRangio-enabled interpretation of possible atherosclerotic stenosis during coronary angiography interventions. The company said the code issuance is a major step forward in helping physicians objectively and cost-effectively determine if percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is indicated and revascularization has occurred in every coronary angiography procedure.

The CathWorks FFRangio System allows objective intraprocedural decision-making. The non-invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) platform quickly and precisely delivers objective multi-vessel physiologic measurements to cost-effectively optimize and confirm intraprocedural PCI therapy decisions.

CPT code 0523T enables healthcare providers using the system to be reimbursed for:

Intraprocedural coronary fractional flow reserve (FFR) with 3-D functional mapping of color-coded FFR values for the entire coronary tree, derived from coronary angiogram data that allow real-time review and interpretation of possible atherosclerotic stenosis(es) intervention.

The CathWorks FFRangio System is in development and is not yet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared.
