    A person is having history of breast cancer. Can we still code a screening mammogram ? Please advise.

    If the exam was ordered as a screening exam, yes you can. If it was a unilateral exam you would need to add the modifier 52. Your diagnosis code would then be the V76.11 with a 2nd dx of V10.3.
