a core biopsy needle was introduced into a mass in the left posterior chest adjacent to the descent thoracic aorta where biopsy was performed using CT guidance. I'm thinking 20206 & 70012 Am I on the right track?

True if a muscle biopsy procedure is done to obtain sample muscle tissue to further analyze a suspected medical condition or infection. The CT code is 77012.
