Can you use 36252 and 36251 together?
Report reads:
Selective bilateral renal artery angiography x 2.
Selective unilateral left renal artery angiography.

(and yes I'm going to the Cardiology boot camp) YEAH!

There are only 2 first order renal arteries. Left and Right. These codes includes any accessory renal artery(s) So, 36252 bilateral covers left and right and any accessory renal arteries. Also these codes have an MUE of 1 so these codes will deny if more than one unit
