Cardiology Surgery vs Medicine

The Medicine chapter of CPT has a subsection on cardiovascular. CPT codes 92950-93799.

Surgical CPT has a subsection on cardiovascular. CPT codes 33010-37799.

Explain why that is. (HINT: Non-invasive vs. Invasive)  How are you going to remember this when you begin coding for a cardiologist?
