Does anyone have any documentation stating the use of 52000 with Urodynamics? I'm trying to find support either way.

Thanks.

A CMG is performed with a catheter and not a scope and I don't see any CCI issues.

I found this here http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1988620-overview:

cystoscopy helps detect bladder lesions and identify other pathologies. These may include foreign bodies (eg, suture, mesh material from prior surgery for prolapse or incontinence), bladder cancer, and bladder stones —conditions that would otherwise remain undiagnosed if only urodynamic studies are performed. A visual inspection of the urethra can also establish a diagnosis of urethral stricture or identify urethral diverticulum. Such conditions may contribute to incontinence and irritative voiding symptoms.
