ATCOR Medical Reimbursement Guide
Established by the AMA in 2016, the SphygmoCor® Pulse Wave Analysis (PWA) procedure coding is reported using the CPT® Code 93050 and outlined in the ATCOR Reimbursement Guide.
"You really can't practice good clinical medicine now without measuring central blood pressure. You can’t predict risk. You can’t predict goals. You can’t predict treatment. You don’t know how stiff the arteries

Importance of Digital Vascular Biomarkers & Pulse Wave Analysis (PWA)
ATCOR’s SphygmoCor® XCEL PWA (pulse wave analysis) uses a standard brachial cuff to measure brachial systolic and diastolic pressures and capture a brachial waveform. The brachial waveform is then analyzed to provide a central aortic waveform. Noninvasive digital vascular biomarkers are calculated from the central aortic waveform.
Two patients with equivalent brachial pressures (Figure 1) but with significantly different central arterial pressure waveforms (Figure 2). The difference in waveform shapes, due to differences in arterial stiffness and the effects of wave reflections, affect the aortic but not the brachial systolic and pulse pressures.
