    Question Sis
    Medical Coding Books
    What is the correct coding for a sonohysterography? My docs evaluate the uterus, ovaries and cervix PRIOR to infusing the saline, then they do the infusion and then the actual sonohysterography. Would it be appropriate to code both 76830 and 76831 with a modifier -59 on one, and 58340 for the infusion?
    TIA!!
