    Question Ankle Brachial Index Screening??

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can any one tell me the CPT Code the ankle-brachial index (ABI).Doppler (ultrasound stethoscope) Inflating cuffs are placed on arms and legs, the technician positions the Doppler at a 45-degree angle to three arteries: 1) dorsalis pedis; 2) posterior tibia; and 3) brachial of the right and left sides.
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]Medicare LCD manual reports ABIs are not separately reimbursable. [COLOR="SeaGreen"] The only thing that the tech did was measure the blood preasure in the ankles.[/COLOR
    How would code for this?

    Smile Brachial Index Code

    We use 93922, but the documentation must support all of the elements of the ABI.
