Portal Vein

Please note this question was answered in 2014. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


What is included in code 36481? Is it the main portal, right and left portal, and any of the portal branches? I know if we select the veins off the portal (i.e., SMV, IMV) we can use codes 36011/36012, but does that apply to the portal branches if they are selected?
