    Can you charge 78480-26 when doing a complete echo-- for that I have used 93307-26, 93320-26 and 93325-26.

    Thanks for the help!!!!!

    Default Echo

    Code 78480-26 is an add on code for procedure 78460,78461,78464, & 78465 and would not be used with a echo.

    The 93307,93320 & 93325 (26mod) is what is used for a complete Echo.

    Hope this helps!

    78480 is the code for a nuclear stress test. Completely different test from an echo. The three codes you listed are correct.
