In our OB/GYN office, we never bill the sounding separately as it is considered integral to the placement of the IUD...also, in my Ingenix OB/GYN Coding Companion, it says that 57800 is actually the dilation of the cervical canal, not a uterine sounding...it also says that it is usualy a component of a more complex service and not identified separately...in the explanation of 58300 it says that "...a tool is used to gently pull down the cervix; then it is dilated..." So with all that said, I would not bill out the 57800
