    After fully reading RadiologyToday, under the ruleout the rule-out diagnosis. It stated that a Testing Facility IDTF should only code signs and symptons???? I was trained that at a testing facility we are to code only the findings. If a patient comes in for a dexa scan 77080 wth the diagnosis of 733.01, her last one performed was in 2007 and our finding revealed that osteo no longer exist, then I would code the signs and symptons that required the test. Is this correct???
