Can code '93970' be billed twice if once for complete bilateral upper extremites are studied then again if complete bilateral lower extremites are studied during the same encounter?

Yes you can bill this code 93970 for both the extremity, with an appropriate modifier. Also do check the LCD for a compatible Dx.
