    hello,
    for transvaginal ultrasound it is not better to give 996.32-
    V45.51 can be given, not initially.
    Rather, other disorders of female genital tract-623.8, must be given as primary Dx.

    I would use V25.42 Surveillance of intrauterine contraceptive device.

    I agree with V25.42. There is no indication in your question for a reason to use 623.8 (Other specified noninflammatory disorders of the vagina) If the device is "retained" that tells me that they are trying to locate it, so I agree with V25.42 (surveillance)
    Hope that helps. Good luck!
