    75630 is for looking at the aorta and iliacs up to the femoral arteries. A runoff is imaging from the aortic bifurcation to the feet. Usually the pigtail is placed at the level of the renals, and the aorta is imaged (36200/75625). Then the doctor must say that the catheter was pulled down to the aortic bifurcation, and both legs are imaged. Then you code 75716 for bilateral run-off or 75710 for looking at a single leg.

    I hope this helps you out,
