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