    Assuming this is being done by ultrasound?
    93971 x 2 - although you'll have problems getting paid for both. You'll probably have to appeal showing that one is upper, one is lower.
    If this is a Medicare patient, check your LCD, most states have one on non-invasive vascular scans that give you the very few diagnoses this will be paid for.
