Angiogram Question

  1. Default Angiogram Question
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient had selective left coronary angiogram (right transradial approach) and subsequently had a percutaneous transluminal coronary balloon angioplasty of the AV groove branch. My question.....is the angiogram included in the angioplasty?
