I am having trouble finding a CPT code for a bubble echo. Can anyone point me toward the correct code(s)? I don't code a lot of cardio and I want to be sure I am coding it correctly. Thanks.

ok thanks. I know they are using sterile saline mixed with a gas?? Do I need to charge any hcpcs J code for the contrast material?

The gas is air (used to create the bubbles). The contrast is part of the study.

I just wanted to mention, in the future, post your cardiology questions in the cardiology forum. I'm new to adult cardiology as well. I learn quite a bit from the cardiology forum. :)

Thanks for your help. Being a first time poster, I did not realize there were different "categories" until AFTER I posted my question, but I will certainly keep your suggestion in mind next time I post a question.:)
