Question Venous Ultrasound


Local Chapter Officer
Best answers
hello All-

My radiologist is saying if a superficial venous and deep venous ultrasound is done and dictated for venous insufficiency there should be two separate CPT codes. We have always used 93970 for complete bilateral and 93971 for a limited or unilateral.

Does anyone else use an additional code for the superficial dictation?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.
