Ultrasound Guided Core Biopsy

  1. Default Ultrasound Guided Core Biopsy
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone tell me if there is a 10 day global for an ultrasound guided core biopsy, and what is the appropriate code used for it? The physician states he can charge for this as there is no global due to radiology procedure. Thanks

    19102 describes a type of core bx and carries no global period. The radiologic guidance will not carry a global either.

    Don't know, but hope it helps.
