Intraoperative Radiation Therapy CPT Codes

New CPT codes for intraoperative radiation therapy have been introduced and are to be used beginning 2012 . These new codes for electronic brachytherapy are as follows:

77424 IORT delivery, x-ray, single treatment session
77469 IORT management

Electronic Brachytherapy is a minimally invasive procedure and is completed in just one session. This allows the patient to resume normal life activities sooner than any other therapy present today . Other therapeutic alternatives for intraoperative radiotherapy require five to seven weeks of treatment courses.
