    Default Lap Choly Cholangiagram with Liver Bx

    AAPC: Back to School
    When a liver Bx is performed with a major procedure such as a Lap Choly, is it appropriate to use code 47001? Iam not sure the difference between that code and using code47100.In the op report it states he used a core bx needle, so that is why I thought it would be code 47001. Thanks!
