Insurance codes for orthodontic scans

For those using the i-CAT scan in conjunction with
Dolphin 3D to produce an “orthodontic scan”, I am
curious what codes you are using for insurance.
Is CDT/D0322 or CPT/70486 the only appropriate
code (because it is the actual procedure) or can we
itemize by the images we are able to produce?
(panoramic, cephs, etc.) Some of my referring
orthodontists have indicated that acceptance of
the scan for orthodontic purposes could be increased
by billing for individual “procedures” as we have
in the past with conventional radiography.
Appreciate your input. Thanks.
