    Hi Norma,

    For selective coronary angiography that would be 93545 and S&I of 93555.

    Aortography - 93544

    If this is for a heart cath in 2011 make sure the codes are not bundled; these could be billed in 2010 but due to major CV changes in 2011 that has changed.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks~!

    it is for 2011 and not part of a catherization.

    The codes for 2011 would be Selective 93454-26, Aortography 75625-26,59 unless you are talking about the aortic root. Then it would be 93567(no modifier).


    Hope this helps!
