    I need some help with this injection:

    Bilateral Pars Interacticularis injection?

    I have a note that a pars interticular injection is the same as a facet joint injection, therefore depending on the level 64470 or 64475.

    The pars interarticularis is a posterior bony structure between two adjacent facet joints in the lumbar spine. I would go with 64475.
