CT Scan/ Rendering Dr.

Cherie Posted Mon 25th of August, 2014 12:22:37 PM

I have a question regarding the rendering Dr. Can the rendering Dr. order a Ct and not be in the building that day, but another Dr. is. Would he still be the Rendering Dr.(ordering) or should he be the referring Dr.

Thank you for your question.
Please provide more detailed information.

Dr. A orders a CT scan for a patient that he is not currently with? Did another provider contact him to get the order? Is this inpatient or outpatient?

We need a bit more specific information in order to full understand your question and answer it with accuracy.

One Dr. works at another location that is ordering the CT Scan. This is outpatient. So, he will not be at the actual site when the CT is being done. This other location also belongs to the same company, so it's in house. I hope this makes sense. :)

Thank you.
The Ordering Physician does not have to be on site where the CT is being performed. He/She would be the ordering physician. Whomever performs the CT scan would be the rendering physician.
