Localization of pleural fluid and peritoneal fluid


Best answers

Can can anyone assist me with finding the appropriate CPT codes for ultrasonic localization of pleural fluid and peritoneal fluid prior to puncture (just marking without direct needle visualization)?

Any notes on how you found the appropriate code(s) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
