Doesn't "88342" include interpretation?  Why do you need to do
independent quantitation resulting in an additional charge?

I believe it replaces 88358 for the digitalized assay testing such as
Chromavision system.

There is a new  surgical pathology CPT code- 88361- tumor
immunocytochemistry (eg, Her-2/neu, estrogen/progesterone receptor)
quantitative or semiquantitative, each antibody-
could someone give me examples of the test names that this would be
referring ? There is confusion as to just what is being conveted here.
