    Post What is the difference between code CPT 76005 and 77003.

    AAPC: Back to School
    My Physician wants to know the difference between codes 76005 and 77003, I did not find 76005 in CPT 2010, or 2011, is this code deleted?
    I did find 77003 which is a Fluroscopic guidance and localization of needle or catheter tip for spine or paraspinous diagnostic or therapeutic injection procedures(epidural, subarachnoid ,or sacroiliac joint), including neurolytic agent destruction.

    Please help I am a new coder.
