93975 & 76770

Yes, a renal ultrasound is done and the physician also states information about the resistive indices.The discription states "multiple longitudinal and transverse grayscale,as well as color pulse doppler images"... can codes 76770 & 93975 be reported?

Renal & Aorta US w/Doppler

Referring physician ordered (and studies were completed):

Aorta ultrasound w/Aortic Doppler
Renal ultrasound w/Renal Doppler

The studies included grayscale imaging of the aorta and kidneys, color & pw Doppler of the aorta, iliac arteries, and renal arteries & veins.

My questions are
1) When do you charge for a "complete" retroperitoneal (for grayscale and Doppler)?
2) Would this still just be 93976 & 76770-59 (limited Doppler & limited retro us)
or would the renal alone be a limited retro us & complete retro Doppler because it evaluated arterial & venous circulation of kidneys?

:confused:
