Thank you for your question.
The official code descriptor of CPT® code 73630 states: Radiologic examination, foot; complete, minimum of 3 views
The official code descriptor of ICD code M85.811 states: Other specified disorders of bone density and structure, right shoulder
Since, the x-rays were performed of the foot region, reporting diagnosis code of shoulder would be inappropriate.
Kindly report the diagnosis code related to foot anatomy/ or lower limb; as per the documentation.
To seek the appropriate ICD10 CM code, provide us with the reason for performing foot x-ray.
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
