I wouldn't use 36478-53 due to the reimbursement is high and the dr. wasn't able to do any of the ablation. Take a look at 36000 and 36012. If he was able to actually place the catheter, 36012 may apply. If not, I'd use 36000. I'd also use whichever imaging guidance CPT that applies (ultrasound, CT, fluoroscopic).
Hope this helps.
