    Default Upper GI with small Bowel Follow thru
    Medical Coding Books
    Could someone tell me the correct CPT code(s) for this procedure. I was thinking it would be 43235, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks

    Are you talking about an endoscopy? Or fluoro/x-ray exam - 74245 or 74249

    Default Esophagogastroduodenoscopy?
    Cheryl,

    You are right, 43235 — "Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy including esophagus, stomack, and either the duodenum and/or jejunum as appropriate; diagnostic, with or without collection of specimens(s) by brushing or washing (separate procedure)"

    Does this include what your physician means by 'small bowel follow thru' ?
