Cardiology Question for the Week of September 12, 2022


What are some of the guidelines for reporting 93572?


Use 93572 in conjunction with 93571. Do not report 93572 in conjunction with 0523T. 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.
