According to edits - I should bill 52351 between the two.
Assuming this is because 52351 goes further into the body VS the bladder bx.
With 52351 being diagnostic though - it throws me.
You would think you would bill for the bladder bx because work was actually done VS looking around.
Wouldn't you think? Any thoughts?

Think what would help is, CPT 52351 done for scouting for the biopsy? If so, leave off 52351, this is a diagnostic procedure. The intent here sounds like 52204 only.
