So, if the reason documented for the xray exam is "foot pain" and the results in the xray report say bunion and hammertoe, how do I know if this is the cause of the "foot pain"? Maybe the patient ends up with a diagnosis from their physician of plantar fasciitis? How do I know whether to code the bunion and hammertoe, or the foot pain with bunion and hammertoe next as incidental findings?
