    Default Liver biopsy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a dr who does a liver biopsy when preforming a laparscopic cholecystectomy. Not sure what cpt code to use for the liver biopsy.

    Wedge biopsy or needle biopsy?
    I've wondered about this too since both 47001 and 47100 are for open procedures.

    I would use procedure 47379 (unlisted)
