No. 93541 is for an injection [during cardiac catheterization] in the pulmonary arteries which carry deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle [through the pulmonary valve] to the lungs.

The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium. I have never encountered a cardiac catheterization where angiography was done or attempted,
