74250-26-52 ?

the procedure is Small Bowel follow-through with KUB 21 images. The report also documents that fluoro was not used. Should modifier 52 be appended to 74250-26

The above documentation does not clearly indicate that how the procedure was performed. Becuase real-time X-Ray (Fluorscopy) is part of the CPT procedure (74250) and it cannot be completed without use of fluoroscopy. Please provide the procedure note for better understanding.
