    Exclamation Trans-lesion pressure measurement

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code for a trans-lesion pressure measurement of renals?

    I dont know if there is a code for this type of procedure. It may fall under billing an interventional procedure which includes catheter placement and imaging. But you need the report to properly code this. You may have to use an unlisted procedure code.

    Sorry, I wasnt much help.
