Ultrasound guidance marking and diagnostic ultrasound


Local Chapter Officer
Best answers
I had a scenario asked of me today regarding marking for ultrasound guidance. The techs state they also perform a diagnostic ultrasound. They stated it is ordered. I say if an order is received then you would perform 76705 for the marking and also the guidance. I am receiving clarification on whether or not there is an order but does anyone else have this scenario at times?
