Please help I have a doctor that did cysto, BRP, ureteroscopy and a ureteral dilation for the dilation there was no stricture and I am having a hard time finding which CPT code to use any suggestions would be great thanks

You can handle this two ways......

1) Based on the documentation you have, code dx 593.4, with (assuming the approach was transurethral) CPT 52344 and deal with a "possible" Medical Necessity denial OR

2) Query the doctor for a more specific diagnosis (ie: stricture, hydronephrosis, etc), and verification of the procedure done.
