    Arthrography code selection is limited to joints such as ankle, elbow, hip , knee, sacroilliac, shoulder, temporomandibular, and wrist.

    76499 Unlisted diagnostic Radiographic procedure

    The above code I thought you could use and compare to possibly 72275 or one of the codes for the joints that might be similiar in size.

    For the injection procedure, I am not sure if 64490 would be appropriate or not. Since the new facet codes came out I have seen any articles if these codes can be reported for injection at the joint location you mentioned.

    Thanks. I'm going to go with the unlisted code for the arthrogram. As far as the injection, I was looking at 20600 (small joint).
