    Without reading the report, your codes should be as follows:

    93459 (26, 59)
    75630 (26,59)

    Check what type of catheter was used in billing a 92973.


  4. Default
    was the aortic valve crossed for measurements? 93455 or 93459
    What was the indication for the aortogram?
    Drug eluting stent? 92980 or G0291
    The subclavian exam was probably to look for an IMA graft?
