    Default Brachiocephalic arteriography

    AAPC: Back to School
    A Cerebral Angiogram-Multi-vessel
    Selective Catheterization was performed on the artery below:

    BRACHIOCEPHALIC ARTERY ..not code pathway

    S&I Image codes:
    75680 - Common Arteries
    75685 - Vertebral
    75658 - Brachial, retrograde

    Is CPT code 75658 the appropriate code to use for Brachialcephelic Artery image interpretation?

    Did you look at 75774 instead?

    Default Brachiocephalic

    75658 is retrograde brachial...here we have brachiocephalic. We'd use 75710 for brachicephalic angio.
