    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe CPT codes for the placement of a Swan-Ganz is 93503 and the U/S guidance is 76937.
    You may need some modifiers... that's where you'll need some additional help.

    Thanks, that is the code I was looking at as well (93503). I was not sure what to use for the US code, but I will check the one you gave me. Thanks for your help!

    Do anyone else know if the US code is the correct code to use? Thanks!
