Vacuum Assisted Core Biopsy on skin (other than breast lesion)

Mercy Posted Thu 13th of October, 2011 16:19:53 PM

Hi,
We did a vacuum assisted core biopsy with ultrasound guidance on a skin lesion on a leg mass. What CPT code would I use for this. I know there is a vacora for a breast lesion 1910 but this was a skin lesion.
Any thoughts
Marci

I have not witnessed it being performed other than breast.

Need additional time for more research.
