Help Please. What would be the S&I for thyrocervical trunk angiography?

Patient is status post intra-arterial chemotherapy for laryngeal CA

Patient now presents for follow-up study.

Rt Femoral artery is punctured. Rt thyrocervical trunk is catheterized. Angiogram reveals the rt thyrocervical trunk no longer shows a normal distrubution for the inferior thyroid artery, but there are clear connections to it....

The catheterization is 36217. But what would the S&I be?

Help please.

I think you can use 75710 since the thyrocervical is directly catheterized .
