    Cool CPT for Frozen Section followed by TLH

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to find a CPT code for a patient with CIN III, she needs to have a frozen section & then a Total Lap. Hysterectomy ? I have the code for TLH, but can't seem to locate one on the Frozen Section. Thank you!

    88331 single , First tissue block with frozen section(s) or 88332, 88333, 88334.
    But most appropriately for intraoperative consultation on aspecimen requiring both frozen section aand cyto eval , use 88331 and 88334

    it still goes on .Please check the page 377 CPT Manual
