The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for nailfold capillaroscopy is 94760. This code is used by healthcare providers to report the procedure to insurance companies and other payers.

Here are the steps involved in performing nailfold capillaroscopy:

  1. Gather the necessary equipment and supplies, including a capillaroscope, lubricant, and cotton balls or gauze.
  2. Clean the skin around the nails with an antiseptic solution.
  3. Apply a drop of oil or other lubricant to the nailfold.
  4. Gently press on the nailfold with the capillaroscope to make the capillaries more visible.
  5. Examine the capillaries using the capillaroscope, looking for abnormalities such as dilated or damaged capillaries, capillary loop abnormalities, and changes in capillary density.
  6. Document the findings in the patient’s medical record.
  7. Clean and sterilize the equipment and dispose of any hazardous materials according to established protocols.

Nailfold capillaroscopy is typically performed by a dermatologist or rheumatologist. The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and takes only a few minutes to complete. It is generally considered a safe and painless procedure with minimal risks.
