physician doing DX LBP (62270) w/ fluoro (77003). Does the physcian need to document fluoro in the body of the report to bill 77003. Can you also provid a link for documentation requirements when billing radiology guidance

From a CPT coding perspective, reporting a radiologic guidance procedure code, including codes 76000 and 77003, requires a separate distinctly iden-tifiable report, or documentation within the report for the procedure where guidance was used, and should be signed by the interpreting physician, as indicated in the Radiology Guidelines.
