cysto bladder biopsy and ureteroscopy 52351, 52204

Edit with 52351 as comprehensive, but it seems more work is done with the biopsy. Am I stuck only reporting 52351? OP Excerpt: Dome of the bladder. We used sterile water and a biopsy forceps. These two areas were biopsied and completely removed. We used a Bugbee at a setting of 30 to cauterize the biopsy sites for hemostasis. I next performed flexible ureteroscopy of the reimplanted ureter. This showed no abnormalities within the ureter or upper tract collecting system. There were no tumors seen. A left retrograde pyelogram was performed. No filling defects were seen. We switched over to the rigid cystoscope. A right retrograde pyelogram was performed.
