ARTERIAL DOPPLER STUDY

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

SuperCoder Answered Wed 14th of December, 2011 17:57:54 PM

Most probably:
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.
*
But,
the correctness codes depend on detailed documentation of the report to pick an appropriate code from the range of codes from 93922-93931.
