Billing MRA and MRV of Brain

    When a patient has both an MRA and MRV of Brain done - dictation is different for both procedures (I do not usually see this - it is generally just an MRA of brain being done).

    Would I code it as 70544 (also being done w/o contrast) 2x with a 59 modifier?

    Thanks for your help!

    You would only code 70544.
