Artery pressures during an angio?

    Default Artery pressures during an angio?
    Medical Coding Books
    Indication: Mesenteric angina

    the SMA was reentered and pressures were obtained. pressures beyond SMA stenosis were 174/105 and the aorta 193/110.

    Can I bill for the pressures being obtained and if so what is the code?
