    Default new 50690 question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Could 50690 be used for the injection of contract for retrograde pyelogram.

  2. #2


    Are you going through an ileal conduit?

  3. #3


    50690 says injection procedure for visualization of ileal conduit and/OR ureteropyelography, exclusive or radiologic service. So I guess my question really is..Is a retrograde pyelogram considered a ureteropyelography?

  4. #4


    Have you looked at 52005? This is the injection of contrast through a ureter catheter, but the catheter is placed using a cystourethroscopy.
