    They are cerebral angiograms. Our precert girl has been precerting all with 75665 only.

    This is NOT my area of expertise, but ...

    I seem to recall from a presentation that some carriers group procedures by "family" ... so it's possible that using ANY of the angiogram codes is acceptable for the entire "family" of angiogram codes. Check with your carrier to be sure.

    I hope that helps.
