There is a difference in what test was performed vs what was able to be viewed
If a full echo and doppler were performed then code for that. The fact that it was "technically limiting" and he did not get a clear view of the PV is irrelevant.
Look for maybe a 2nd Dx for this study, maybe pt obesity
Assuming there were no equipement or tech issues involved that lead to substandard results, the "technically limited" could actually support medical necessity for a f/up procedure
