    Question LHC with LV gram...Help!
    Exam Training Packages
    If a patient is having a LHC with coronary angio and LV gram, would you code any different than 93458/26 for a hand injected LV gram to conserve contrast load???

    No, LV is being imaged and it doesn't matter how you get the contrast there.
