Is it ever possible to assign two primary FNA biopsy codes at the same session?
Yes. When two separate lesions are sampled using two different types of modality-specific guidance, each lesion is assigned the modality-specific primary code. Any additional lesions studied using the same type of guidance would be described with the modality-specific add-on code.
