    Default uterine sounding

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know the appropriate code to use for uterine sounding? This was done 2 weeks after a hysteroscopic septum repair
    (58560, 0 follow up days) for septated uterus. Would I use an E&M code? or 57800?
    Thanks for your help!

    This is just an E/M code. Part of an examination post surgery.
