You should be able to report the TDC and US guidance in addition to 99291. Append mod 25 to 99291.
A number of factors go into choosing the proper catheter code. 36558 is a likely possibility for patients 5 and over. 36565 is another possibility. For US guidance, look to 76937-26, assuming the code definition requirements are met (e.g., permanent recording).
