GU Studies
« on: July 28, 2010, 11:00:06 AM »
ladies and Gents need some help on this one.

QUESTION: What code(s) should be reported when an x-ray is taken of the abdomen and/or pelvis, when organs of the genitourinary system have been filled with radiopaque contrast in a retrograde fashion by the ER doctor, but no fluoroscopy is used to evaluate the anatomy?

Ihae a few codes on mind but just need some other input

Thanks

I don't personally have any experience with this.  I tried to research it for you but the info I found is conflicting.  I was hoping another forum member had some experience here.

Thanks Michele.  I was hoping to get some confirmation on 51600 and 74430-26, the codes which I'm leaning towards but I'm thinking there may be more to this that I'm missing
