Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

What are some coding tips for 75774?

Answer:

This code may only be used with arterial procedures and includes pulmonary angiography. Do not assign this code when additional veins may be studied after the primary exam. Do not use this code when extra runs, extra views, obliques, etc., are performed without selectively advancing the catheter/device into a different vessel than that which was already selectively studied.
