    Default cpt code 76700 v/s 76770-- Help!

    Can someone please help me with the difference between cpt 76700 & 76770. If my Doctor does an Abdominal Ultrasound for Aortic Aneurysm what should I bill.

    Default

    Code(s) Description
    76700 ‑ 76705 Ultrasound, abdominal, real time with image documentation
    76770 ‑ 76775 Ultrasound, retroperitoneal (eg, renal aorta nodes), real time with image documentation
    I would say it's the 76770 since it's a US for a AAA
