fluoroscein/icg imaging and injection during intestinal procedures

Good Day Codapedists,

I code general surgery/level 1 trauma surgery. More and more I'm seeing in the operative report where they did ICG or Meth Blue dye with flouroscein imaging to check the viability of an anastomosis, graft, or perforation repair. Can I code for that and if so, which CPT® codes do I use. SO far I've only found 15860 for the injection, but since the imaging is to check the viability/vascularization of the repair, can I code for it at all??

respectfully

ccrider
