    Default Needle Core Biopsy with ultrasound guidence

    AAPC: Back to School
    Physician is performing Biopsy of subcutaneous nodule on the abdominal wall and thigh.
    He uses the spring loaded BARD device and ultrasound guidance. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I came up with CPT 11100 and +11101 Path Report states: Maligant melanoma involving fibroadipose tissue.
