Is a swimmers view considered 1 or 2 views? 72040 or 72050

FINDINGS: Frontal and lateral views of the cervical spine are obtained we well as the swimmer's view of the cervicothoracic junction.

Thanks:)

swimmers view is simply the position they're in when the xray is taken...
swimmer's view (humerus in 170-180° forward flexion).
it's a lateral view with the arms in the above position.

so, I guess it could be the 72020 even ....right? more specified location...in the swimmers position

Remember you are looking for the number of views not the number of images. Frontal, lateral and swimmers would be 3 views; patient in 3 different positions.
