Abdominal Aortogram

    Default Abdominal Aortogram

    I went to a seminar, and I thought I heard that to bill for an aortogram (75625 or 75630), the renals have to be described in the findings. Is that correct, because I have had some reports that do not describe the renals but the lower abdominal aorta and the iliacs?

    Yes you are right. I follow the same
    75625-their should be documentation for the renal (visceral)arteries. most often the documentation says distal aorta is patent which would not be enough to code.
    75630-aorta with renal arteries+bilateral extremities(bilateral femorals should be documented)
