Thread: Cystoscopy with bladder irrigation

    Question Cystoscopy with bladder irrigation

    AAPC: Back to School
    The doctor did a cystoscopy with irrigation of small crystal formations but didnot insert a cath for the 52005 code so I am thinking the 52000. Any ideas??

    Have you looked at 52001?

    I did but wasnt sure because it states "obstructing clots"
