    Default Radial artery puncture

    Promo: Code Books
    Our physicians do cath and have started to do them through the radial artery punture instead of through the groin how would I code this. I typically use 93452 is there a different code since they are going in a different way? Please Help

    No this is coded the same way. Kind of a new thing for physicians!
