Surefire Filter to Prevent Non-Target Vessel Embolization during Y-90

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 The coding advice may or may not be outdated.

Question:

I have a patient whom we are mapping for a Y-90 embolization. The physician comes back on the same date of service and places a Surefire Filter for infusion of Technetium 99m MAA. Is there a separate code for this? I was just going to code for the catheter placements on this particular exam and not the S&I since we had already done a diagnostic exam earlier in the day.
