:)We have a referring physician ordering bilateral single view lower extremity x-rays for intoeing. CPT 73592 does not work because the kids are older that 12 months. The physician is concerned about radiation exposure to separate femur and tib/fib, and does not feel that re-reading the same x-ray repeatedly should be necessary to generate separate reports for femur and tib/fib. Any suggestions? :)
