In a free standing imaging center, if a US guided breast biopsy is performed and then a "soft" mammogram is performed to check placement of the biopsy clip. is an order required for the mammogram or is that considered part of the course of care? Any help is appreciated. I was once told that the radiologist could determine the need for mammogram and no order is needed but I want to be sure.

Hi Wendi,

Mammogram will be included in the main procedure like placement of biopsy clip, and will not be separately billable. please feel free to ask for any further query.
