How would I code for the placement of these needles into the edge of the aneurysm sac prior to embolization?

CT Abd/pelvis with IV was done confirming the presence of a type II endoleak. From a left posterior paraspinal approach employing CT fluoro a 17-guage guiding needle was advanced to the edge of the aneurysm sac having a trajectory expected to enter the endoleak. From a more lateral approach a second 17-guage guiding needle was advanced to the edge of the sac having a trajectory expected to enter the sac in a slightly different location. The patient was then transferred to the angiographic suite where the direct sac emboliaztion was subsequently performed which will be separately reported.

Is there a code for the placement of both needles?

Thanks,
