Does anyone know CPT code? Endoscope was not used. Nasal ciliary biopsy was performed by brushing the lateral aspects of bilateral inferior and middle turbinates with specimen brush until bleeding was encountered.

30100 -Biopsy, intranasal .. Maybe?

The physician removes mucosa from inside the nose for biopsy. This biopsy is performed when the mucosa is suspicious for disease. Some normal tissue adjacent to the diseased mucosa is also removed during the biopsy. This allows the pathologist to compare diseased versus nondiseased tissues. The excision site may be closed primarily with sutures or may be allowed to granulate without closure.
