    Default Groin Ultrasound - Recent Cath with Right Groin Access

    AAPC: Back to School
    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????

    Just a thought process since my mind refuse to concieve the idea of giving 76886 on the ground it is for infant!! Do not mistake . How about giivng a try for 76970 ultrasound study for follow up (but we should specify ) ?

    CPT Assistant/ AMA says to use 76882 for an us of the groin.

    BUT- Since they are looking at arteries in the extremity I would consider 93926....
