Summary

In this procedure, the provider performs imaging supervision and interpretation of a shoulder joint study. The provider injects contrast material and/or air into the patient’s shoulder joint and takes a series of X–rays as it flows through the joint to evaluate the different joint structures for conditions such as arthritis, adhesive capsulitis, or a frozen joint, tears, or abnormalities of the cartilage. Report this code to represent only imaging supervision and interpretation for this procedure.
