Pantheris OCT in the Periphery

Please note this question was answered in 2017. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.

Question:

We are using an Avinger Pantheris Atherectomy catheter in the lower extremities. It allows the doctor to image using the optical coherence tomography technology. We are charging for the atherectomy. Can we also charge for intravascular ultrasound? I know the OCT codes are specific to coronary arteries (92978,92979).
