Hello,
If the physician only dilates the urethra by placing the cystoscope would that be coded 52281 or only 52000.
Thank you

I would need more information. 52281 is reported when a diagnostic cysto cannot be accomplished due to urethral stenosis which then requires dilation (but not using the scope). If he simply made a few passes at putting the scope in before it was fully inserted I would go with 52000 only.
