You can't bill for cath placements as they will be included within codes 37220-37235. I would use: 37221 LT Common Iliac; IVUS 37250, 75945-26; Coil embolization 37204 (if true coil embolizatoin), 75894; to bill for the angio's you must first read the guidelines for billing with the peripherals: see pg. 373 in CPT (AMA version); if you meet the criteria for billing you must add a modifier 59.
