oral contrast billing code?

Does anyone have a supply (HCPCS) code that would be applicable in a hospital setting for oral Gastrografin?

The only thing I could find that could come close is A4641

A4641 is not appropriate for Gastrografin.  Gastrografin is not a radiopharmaceutical.  You cannot bill for oral CT contrast.  It is included in the code for the CT procedure.
