I have a Dr., whose patient requested NO anesthetic during her epidural injection; he injected the Omnipaque but did not like the "spread" so after discussion with the patient, they discontinued the procedure. Would modifer -73 be correct?

yes, then I would apply the 73 modifier---however did he give her a local anesthetic (Marcaine, Lidocaine) prior to the injection of the Omnipaque? This could change things as well.
