Physican order is for a CT sinus limited, dx: chronic sinusitis.

Report is normal other than an incidental finding of a deviated septum. Can i still use 473.9 as the dx even though the scan is normal?

Thanks-

You should always use the diagnosis from the order made by the physician.

Even if the study came normal you will still use the diagnosis in the order.
