    Default Cavity Evaluation Device for MAMMOSITE

    Hello! I am researching the mammosite coding and the cavity evaluation device coding. The only thing that I am learning from vendors and other web sites is that the placement of the Cavity Evaluation Device is considered "inclusive" to the main procedure and will not be paid separately.... however, I still have not found a specific code to bill for the Cavity Evaluation Device - other than the 19499 - unlisted one. Has anyone obtained any new information on billing for the Cavity Evaluation Device at the time of the partial mastectomy?
    Thank you.
