LE lithotripsy with IVUS

Date: Jun 28, 2021

Question:

Can we report intravascular ultrasound codes 37252 and 37253 with new lithotripsy codes C9764-C9775? They are not on the list of primary codes. As I understand, catheter placement is bundled into lithotripsy code, so we are not reporting it. There is a recent diagnostic angiogram, and we are not able to code for it either.
