Question:
Does visceral angiogram code 75726 include any number of visceral vessels studied?

Answer:
Code 75726, Angiography, visceral, selective or super selective (with or without flush aortogram) is reported per visceral vessel selectively catheterized and studied.  Each artery, (for example, the superior mesenteric) must be selectively catheterized and the interpretation for each must be separately documented. Also, remember that according to the CPT code description, a flush angiogram is also included in any visceral arterial study.
