3D Transperineal Ultrasound-Guided Prostate Biopsy

Nicole Posted Thu 03rd of December, 2015 20:22:23 PM

The doctor did a 3D Transperineal Ultrasound-Guided Prostate Biopsy (26 prostate biopsies total).

Would this be the 55706?

Yes, you are coding correctly. Stereotactic biopsy is a 3D ultrasound guided biopsy, so you can code 55706(Biopsies, prostate, needle, transperineal, stereotactic template guided saturation sampling, including imaging guidance) for your procedure.
