Question HCPCS Code J0280 and J1245

We have come across some confusion in our practice. Our physicians do nuclear stress tests in office.

lets say a patient came in and they were given 125mg of aminophylline and 44.1 mg of persantine, per the HCPCS guidelines, we should bill this as ONE unit of J0280 and 5 units of J1245?

Any insight is appreciated.
