Sounds like it probably was all needle aspirations if they put some passes in cytolyt. If I am understanding your procedure, it appears there were 7 billable evaluation events. Bill 88172 for the first one and 88177x6 for the others.
You probably already know to bill 88173 for the final interpretation and 88305 if you made a cell block on the cytolyt specimen.

Sorry I was a little vague on my quest for answers!! It was our first one,............!
Pathologist was down in the Lab (we are a small hospital) and slides were sent down. He gave a dx/adequacy (none of them were really adequate for a proper dx) for each slide, they sampled 3 levels multiple times, some passes were grouped together. Slides came down about 7 different times for a total of 22. We received slides that some appeared to be "dropped on" and some were smears. And then after the procedure received aspirates in Cytolyte.
It was a very interesting day!
Much thanks! Tanya
