Pulse volume recording

Date: Mar 2, 2023


I have a physician who is doing a pulse volume recording only.

"Study: Right lower extremity pulse volume recording. Indication: Gangrenous changes of prior foot amputation. Interpretation: Pulse volume recordings were obtained at the right high thigh, low thigh, calf, and ankle level. This showed decreased amplitudes at all levels. Impression: Pulsatile recordings of the right lower extremity are suggestive of more proximal disease."

Would this be reported with code 92923 or 92922? If neither, what should I be coding?
