    Thumbs up Halo Radiofrequency ablation

    The Halo catheter is attached to the scope and uses radiofrequency laser to ablate lesions and/or diseased tissue. Your choice of 43228 looks just fine to me!

    I submitted an inquiry to the Halo manufacturer asking which codes they recommend for this service, and their response was that the ASGE recommends either 43228 or 43258.
