If a patient comes into the office with a diagnosis of 626.0, and the doctor performs a vaginal ultrasound to check if patient is pregnant and finds that the patient is. Do you code with the 76830 non-ob transvaginal ultrasound since she came in not knowing if she was pregnant or do you code with a 76817 with a pregnant diagnosis since that was the outcome of the test.
