SCOLIOSIS SERIES

Evelyn Posted Tue 17th of May, 2011 19:04:57 PM

the order is for a scoliosis series, the report indicates 2 views, not specifying erect and supine, both films are AP. What is the best code to use for this exam?

SuperCoder Answered Tue 17th of May, 2011 20:44:21 PM

If it is mentioned as "standing", then you would code 72069. If "standing" is not mentioned, then for two views, even though both films are AP, you would take 72080.
