    Order is for a renal artery duplex and bilateral renal US with left renal angle..would the appropriate dx code be 76770 and 93975??


    INDICATION: Recurrent UTI's with hematuria. Irregular lab work.COMPARISON: None.

    TECHNIQUE: Standard duplex Doppler evaluation of renal arterial vasculature
    was performed utilizing a curved transducer.

    FINDINGS: Renal arteries well seen bilaterally with normal velocities at
    the proximal, mid, distal, and hilar levels with no evidence for focal
    atherosclerosis. Bilateral renal veins are also identified, appearing
    normal. Evaluation of arcuate vessels is normal. Expected resistive
    indices are identified. Normal renal to aortic ratios present, bilaterally.
    Aorta itself shows normal caliber throughout its abdominal extent, 2.1 cm in
    greatest dimension, proximally, 1.6 cm in greatest dimension at the mid
    aspect, and 2.0 cm in greatest dimension at the distal aspect. Iliac
    arteries show borderline size, 1.1 cm in greatest dimension. Kidneys are
    normal in size and contour, right measuring 10.6 cm and left measuring 10.8
    cm in greatest pole-to-pole diameter. No evidence for hydronephrosis nor
    perinephric fluid. Septation noted within the bladder without additional
    discrete pathology. Prevoid bladder volume of 165 ml with minimal postvoid
    residual volume of 10 ml.

    IMPRESSION:1. Normal duplex Doppler evaluation of renal arterial vasculature with no
    evidence for hemodynamically significant stenosis.2. Normal sonographic evaluation of the kidneys.3. Septation within the bladder without additional discrete pathology.
