    use of doppler and doppler color flow must be documented. If not used then code with 93308-26 only. You cannot bill for administering the saline (bubble study).

    When my doctor goes to the hospital and reads the interp of a 2d echo we code the 93306-I-26.

    this is a limited echo, since not all of the chambers,
    valves and pericardium is visualized you cannot bill with 93306-26
