47562 vs 47563 with Firefly ICG

Date: Mar 15, 2023


Reference Question ID 16596 - If the physician dictates that the cholangiography is done with ICG cholangiogram, is this still coded as 47563? Or should it be 47562. There is no mention of of contrast injection with the ICG injection. I code only for physicians that perform the procedures as inpatients or observation patients.
