Intravascular distal coronary blood flow velocity measurements include all Doppler transducer manipulations and repositioning within the specific vessel being examined, during coronary angiography or therapeutic intervention (e.g., angioplasty). For an unlisted cardiac catheterization procedure, use 93799.
