Radiologist is performing MRI RT foot and ankle - the report talks about both areas. What CPT would you use 73718 or 73721 - I know I cannot code for both. Patient came in with rt foot pain and swelling. See attached report.

Thanks,

The code(s) have to match the requesting provider's order, which looks to be an "MRI RT FOOT". 73721 is for an MRI of lower extremity joint; 73718 is an MRI for "other than joint". I agree with what the provider documented, 73718.
