Groin Ultrasound

  1. #1
    Default Groin Ultrasound
    Medical Coding Books
    Indication: Recent Cath with Right Groin Access

    Right Groin ultrasound: There is normal flow in the right common femoral and SFA. No hematoma is noted. There is no pesudoaneurysm.

    Impression: Unremarkable right groin ultrasoun. No pesudoaneurysm.

    Is anyone billing for this??? thoughts on CPT?? 76705????

    I looked at that code but was unsure since the guidance in the CPT book for the codes in that code range state .... primarily for evaluation of muscles, tendons, joints and/or soft tissures.

    Do you have any documentation that supports using this code? I would greatly appreciate any additional info!

    Thank you!

    I am also leaning towards 76705. As far as I believe, groin is coded in other parts of abdomen, as we code 789.09 for groin pain.
