Do you eat the charge for using contrast for both renal art and echo
studies?  Or just renal art studies?  The echo sonographers here are looking
into contrast agents for the echo studies and are trying to find out about
reimbursement.  I asked the echo supervisor and she said that she has found
ICD-9 and CPT codes for using contrast agents  ???

NO!  We have to eat the charge.

    How do you bill for it? Is it being reimbursed if you are billing?
