    the doc is doing a translaminar MIDLINE t9-10 epidural sterioid injection.

    He raised the needle over the t9-10 interlaminar space and did an epidural spread.

    I am leaning towards 62310 due to the fact that it is MIDLINE..Could someone share their opinion?

    the key word interlaminar and not seeing mention of the needle being directed into the foramen I would agree 62310 would be your code selection.
