    What CPT codes would I use for a stress echo done in the cardiologist office?
    Thanks for any help.

    93350 "Echocardiography, transthoracic, real-time with image documentation (2D), includes M-mode recording, when performed, during rest and cardiovascular stress test using treadmill, bicycle, exercise and/or pharmacologically induced stress, with interpretation and report".

    Try 93351 - that includes the physician part along with the echo. Hope this helps!

    Be aware that if there is not documentation of the "continuous electrocardiographic monitoring" (basically a continuous EKG) then the 93351 can not be coded
