    Question prostate u/s

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know of a code for ultrasound to check the vascular flow of the prostate? Thanks in advance:

    If it's vascular flow, it's a doppler. Look at codes 93976 & 93981. I'd determine between the two of those, dependent upon where and what they're visualizing. See what the report supports. I'd venture to say that it's 93976. Just look at what vessels are being imaged/documented.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.
