CPT Code 45100: Rectal Bx- if you have three, do you bill this code x 3 units "OR" is this single or multiple biopsies?

If all the 3 samples for biopsy were taken during a single session,through the same incision, then code 45100 is to be billed only once, and not thrice.
If the specimens were taken in three different and separate sessions, or through separate incisions, then the CPT can be coded and billed thrice.
