If I am performing a joint injection with a trigger point injection in two different anatomic areas, can I get paid for both?

I heard the intravascular ultrasound IVUS codes have been changed for 2016. What specific changes were made?
I am trying to come up with the right CPT codes for this procedure so we can get it precertified. Can you help?
I heard you say at a course (you were great, by the way, I learned a lot from you!) that we should wait for a pathology report before billing for excision of skin lesions. Please explain why. This may be why I’m not getting paid.
How do you report screening for scoliosis when the patient is sent by the school nurse or the pediatrician but, after the examination, there is no scoliosis identified?
I noticed that some codes in general surgery have “separate procedure” at the end of the code, for example: 44005, open enterolysis (lysis of adhesions). What does that mean?
