Imaging of the nodules in the left lung were performed with patient in the decubitus position and also in the oblique position; however, the target nodule could not be accessed because of position of the ribs. No biopsy was performed.
Charges already entered: 32405-53 AND 77012-53. What are your thoughts on this?

If physician attempted the biopsy procedure (inserted the biopsy needle), then CPT codes 32405-53 & 77012-53 are good to go.
