    I would need to see the documentation before coding. If you can, please post the scrubbed procedural note.

    Without diagnosis or documenation this is truly just a suggestion. For xiphoid process injection have the provider look at 20605 (plus any radiological guidance CPT code if applicable) to see if this is an accurate description of the planned procedure.
