When a patient has both a standing knees xray (73565) and then an additional 2 views of right knee (73560), I know that you would combine the views for the right knee creating 73562-RT. However, do you then also bill 73560-59-LT for the left knee??

SuperCoder has a document that says "This code (73565) should be reported when the anteroposterior (AP) standing view is the only view taken. This code should not be used for studies involving two or three views of each knee even if one of the views happens to be upright."

Not sure if that helps...
