    GROSS DESCRIPTION OF FETUS,ESTIMATED GESTATIONAL AGE 12 TO 13 WEEKS. THE EXAM IS SO INVOLVED, EXAMINATION OF THORACIC AND ABDOMINAL CONTENTS, CRANIAL VAULT OPEN TO REVEAL AN AGE APPROPRIATE BRAIN.

    I do not know what other procedures were performed, but I do know that CPTs 88311-88365, 88399 are excluded.... Meaning you are allowed to use any of these if performed. Hope this is helpful!
