Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week

Cardiology Question for the Week of March 23, 2020

Posted Posted in Cardiology

Question:

Is code 93567 to be coded only for an aortic root or ascending aortic imaging? If a true, diagnostic abdominal (75625) or thoracic (75605) aortogram is performed at the same time as a diagnostic cardiac cath study should the S&I code from the Radiology section of CPT® continue to be submitted in addition to the diagnostic heart cath codes instead of 93567?
