Cardiac Fluoroscopy by EP Phys

When one of our EP physicians performs a cardiac fluoroscopy at the hospital cath lab to check the lead on a pacemaker/defibrillator, we are only billing 76000 w M-26.
Are we billing this correctly or are we missing any other code? Maybe an injection code should be billed also?

Please help! Thanks

What is being injected? If your just looking at leads, all you can bill is 76000. If your doing something to the pacemaker/ ICD, fluoro is bundled into the procedure.

We've done this a few times, but I was told not to bill because we don't save the images. Does anyone know if this is correct?
Thanks!
