    Question Stress echo and nuc re-visited
    Medical Coding Books
    I am looking for clarification please. Whether done in the cardiologists office or at the hospital, would you code 78452 and 93015 or 78452, 93016, 93018? (I realize at the hospital mod -26 would be added to 78452).
    Thank you
