Thread: Localization clip placement

    Default Localization clip placement

    AAPC: Back to School
    Any ideas on coding an ultrasound guided placement of a gel mark ultra core clip for a breast nodule without a breast biopsy being performed? The only thing done was the placement of the clip for localization so I can't use CPT 19295. Would it be ok to use 19290?
