    Hi, Dr. gave me his procedures for the Hospital and this threw me. How would you code an Angiography for an upper extremity and one for a lower extremity. I have 75710 + 36245 and ? + 36215? Thanks Nancy::

    I code this scenario:
    36215/75710
    36245 (if first order selection) and 75710-59

    As a side note, I agree with the 75710-59 as long as the entire extremity is interpreted in both cases. For the lower extremity angiography, you can code the 75710 as long as the interpretation goes to the knee.

    Hi, Danny P., I noticed that you have the CIRCC Cert. I was intersted in taking that exam, could you give me an idea of what you feel the level of difficulty was and if you spent a lot of time studying for it ?

    Thanks,
