Question Independent Review of test performed by another MD or health pro

How can we give give credit to our MD when he is interpreting an x-ray film the day after ordering it because the results are only available 1-2 days after office visit where MD ordered the same x-ray?
When can personal interpretation of test performed by another MD or health pro count towards time factor or MDM? In other words, if the results of imaging are not available until next day?
My thought is this: In the case where independent review is done day after visit or another day, could MD do an amendment before the visit is billed and whenever the films are reviewed/interpreted to indicate personal review was done, what the findings were, and that results were communicated or will be communicated to patient?
thank you very much
