WHAT IS THE PROPER CPT CODE FOR ARTERIAL DOPPLER STUDY OF BILATERAL EXTREMITY?

93924 – Noninvasive physiologic studies of lower extremity arteries, at rest and following treadmill stress testing, (i.e., bidirectional Doppler waveform or volume plethysmography recording and analysis at rest with ankle/ brachial indices immediately after and at timed intervals following performance of a standardized protocol on a motorized treadmill plus recording of time of onset of claudication or other symptoms, maximal walking time, and time to recovery) complete bilateral study.
the correctness codes depend on detailed documentation of the report to pick an appropriate code from the range of codes from 93922-93931.
