In this procedure, the provider performs imaging supervision and interpretation, S&I, for a separately reportable endoscopic biliary duct catheterization. The provider X–rays the biliary ducts during insertion of a camera, called an endoscope, into the bile ducts. She administers contrast then views the duct’s contents with an X–ray camera, called a fluoroscope. The X–ray checks for tumors, a narrowing or stricture of the duct, stones, or other abnormal formations. Report this code to represent only imaging supervision and interpretation for this procedure.
