Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week

Cardiology Question for the Week of March 23, 2020

Posted Posted in Cardiology


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?
