Physician used eus to reveal multiple echogenic foci within the bile ductc/w stones. The bile duct was dilated . He also did cold forceps biopsies in the mucosa of the antrum.

Yes this could definitely be billed. Just make sure you use mod-59 on the biopsy code.

ex. 574.50,576.8 43259
537.89 42339-59
Just make sure you tie the correct dx's codes with the correct CPT codes.
