    if Dr does in clinic-78452-26 &93015-59, and if he does in out pt-hospital(POS-22) can you tell me what do you code. Do you code the same why because out-pt hospital is ambulatory soo.

  3. Default Code 78451 or 78452
    We are doing Myocardial perfusion at rest and with ecercise with our equiment in the physician office. My concern is that one physician is doing the interpretation and another physician is supervising the exercise test. It would be appropriate to code 1st physician , 78452 , 93018 and 2nd physician 93016 ?. Thank you.
