Is 93567 the appropriate code to report for the evaluation of an aortic dissection without a cardiac catheterization?
No, 93567 is not the appropriate code. Instead, use the following bundled code for this service:
|36221||Non-selective catheter placement, thoracic aorta, with angiography of the extracranial carotid, vertebral, and/or intracranial vessels, unilateral or bilateral, and all associated radiological supervision and interpretation, includes angiography of the cervicocerebral arch, when performed|
