According to clinical examples in radiology volume 5 issue 2 spring 2009-- if a referring physician requests a formal second opinion of a previously reported exam and the consulting physician provides his or her opinion to the referring physician in a written report, the specific CPT code with a modifier 26 should be reported instead of 76140.

Our question is this: Should the DOS be of the initial exam? Or be the date we are doing the 2nd reading?

The DOS should be the date you are doing the 2nd reading.
