Thread: new coder needs help with CPTs

    Default new coder needs help with CPTs

    AAPC: Back to School
    procedure: cystoscopy, dilatation of the ureter, right retrograde pyelogram, ureteroscopy and placement of a right double-J stent.

    Need help with CPTs

    Looking at 52332, 74420-26. Not sure if dilatation of ureter is bundled with this code?

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

  2. #2

    Default Dilatation

    The procedure is for a stent placement and has no reference in the description, CPT Assistant, or other background information related to the code that dilatation is part of the service or indicated as included in the service.

    Hope that helps.
