post mastectomy seroma

  1. Default post mastectomy seroma

    can someone help coding aspiration post mastectomy seroma in the office under ultrasound guidance? I've been given three different ways to bill, with a 79, with a 78 and with a 58. I will need documentation to support any advice I give.
