What are the add on codes?

It is Coding with modifier & supplemental codes that is what I am looking for.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Example: For the urinary system there is an add-on code that is used for intra-abdominal voiding pressure studies. This CPT code is 51797 and it is used with CPT codes 51728 and 51729. If the patient has a bladder voiding pressure study done then it would be coded with CPT code 51728 and if they had an intra-abdominal voiding pressure study done also then CPT code 51797 needs to be coded also
