    Are you asking about a Echo Bubble Study? It's not a contrast injection but an injection of NS (normal saline). If so,

    Code the usual TEE echo codes supported in the report. The NS is usually such a small amount it is not codable. The push to administer the NS is considered inclusive to the echo

    No, my documentation specifically says contrast injection
