    My physician did a heart cath then he advanced the catherter into the proximal abdominal aorta and he injection of contrast was performed. It shows the infranrenal aorta was aneurysmal to a max of 7.0 cm.
    Since he did an injection procedure would we use the 93567?

    Thanks

    It looks like a "fly by" aortogram after heart cath, so G0275 should be used.

    Do we use this even with non medicare?

    G0275 should only be used for Medicare patients.
