    AAPC: Back to School

    HISTORY: Pyelonephritis.

    A preliminary scout film of the abdomen was unremarkable.

    The examination was performed with contrast administered retrogradely
    via a urinary catheter that had been placed aseptically by the
    uroradiology staff. This failed to demonstrate any evidence of
    vesicoureteral reflux either during bladder filling or during
    voiding. The urinary bladder and urethra were unremarkable.

    IMPRESSION: Normal study.

    please clarify me if this has to be coded as 51600,74455 or 51610,74450?
    thanks in advance

    You would code a VCUG: 51600 and 74455.
