    based on the info given, I can give you what the codes most likely would be...the actual report could tell a different story. This is based on all being selected and imaging being documented. The left subclavian...i'm not sure if the left vertebral was imaged?? And these codes are for a "normal" arch...not a bovine.

    75662-bilateral external selections
    75685 RT-vertebral
    75680-bilateral common carotids
    75671-bilateral internal carotids.
    36215-59 left subclavian
    36216-59 left internal
    36218-left external
    36217 RT vertebral
    36218 RT internal
    36218 RT external
