FFR in 1st diagonal and left circumflex

Date: Jul 2, 2021

Question:

Our physician performed FFR in the 1st diagonal and in the left circumflex. May this be reported as 93571-LD and 93572-LC because it was performed in two separate coronary distributions? Or should FFR not be reported for the 1st diagonal because it is not a major coronary artery?
