Not 73218

NOT my area of expertise, but I'll share my thoughts ...

I wouldn't consider the scapula part of the upper extremity, unless I was focusing on the shoulder joint. So I definitely would not use 73218.

If the focus is on the joint, then I think you could use 73221.

If not on the joint, I think you may be stuck with an unlisted code 76498.

Let us know what you decide, and how it turns out.
