Having an issue coding SI joint.
When the dictation states DDD of the SI joint what is the DX code?

Or DDD of the hip? Isnt is the same code?

It must be DJD of SI joint, since Sacroiliac joint has no disc in between. I'd code DJD sacroiliac joint as 715.38, because SI joint neither fall into Lumbosacral joint nor Hip joint. So I'd prefer 715.38 (DJD of any other joints including trunk).
