Bilateral Diagnoses

I understand there are more diagnosis codes for bilateral procedures in ICD-10-CM. This makes sense and I get it. But I noticed that there are some diagnosis codes that don’t have a “bilateral” option. What should we do?

Tumor Embolization

I embolized a neck tumor through two separate arteries (the right inferior thyroid artery as well as the left inferior thyroid artery). Do I code 61626 once or twice? Also, I performed follow-up angiography twice so can I bill 75898-26 x 2 or just once?
