    Question 76705 VS 76775 for Renal US

    AAPC: Back to School
    The only thing being evaluated is Kidney...would you use 76705 or 76775?
    Can';t seem to make hads or tails out of which code to use since kidney is mentioned in both.

    I would probably use 76775 since the kidney is more retroperitoneal then abdominal. Just my thought.
