Some of our radiologist perform 3D 76376 when a patient has a CT scan (say 73700 CT lower extremity) - not all the time but occassionaly they will perform 3D. I know in order to code the 76376 medical necessity needs to be there and it needs to be documented in the report. My boss says who are we to question whether or not there's medical necessity as we're not the physicians. I'm pretty sure there's medical necessity in their dictation, which is quite lengthy but they don't come right out and say "it was medically necessary to perform 3D reconstruction views because" _____. So, to make it sweet and short can I code the 76376?
