    Default Ultrasound question

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a Cardiology office in your work called you and just gave the following information how would you code this.

    Non-Medicare Patient
    Ultrasound of the groin
    Dx: aneurysm

    I'm strickly coding Inpatient E/M visits at my place of work, so this question threw me for a loop, when the cardiology office called.

    I told them to use CPT 76770.

    But something tells me this is not right.

    for our radiologists we code ultrasound of the groin as 76880. We get that from the CSI navigator. It has a little table for all the odd regions that doctors have a tendency to do ultrasounds on that are not clearly defined in the CPT book.
