What code should be assigned for the procedure ‘Sialoendoscopy’?
This procedure is either performed as a diagnostic procedure (on its own) or in conjunction with a dilatation of the salivary gland.
As there is no specific ACHI code available for this procedure assign 90140-00  Other procedures on salivary gland or duct.
If Sialoendoscopy is performed in conjunction with a dilatation and/or extraction of calculi assign the code for dilatation 30262-00  Dilation of salivary gland or duct or 30266-02  Removal of calculus from salivary gland or duct only and use free text to add specificity.
