Patient comes in for a growth ultrasound 76815 this is her second pregnancy with twin Di/Di and is 32 weeks. What is the correct way to code diagnosis for IDC10
should it be z36 and then Z3A.32?

Yes ICD Code Z36 (antenatal screening of mother)can be reported as a first-listed diagnosis with Z3A.32 which specifies gestation time (32 weeks).
