Cpt code help!!!!

    Default Cpt code help!!!!
    Medical Coding Books
    Would anyone know the CPT code for a "Ball-catcher's view"? Is it a code all by itself or would I code a 2/3vw hand or wrist or both? We are not sure on this one and if anyone could attach some kind of documentation on where they found the answer would be greatly appreciated!!
    Thank you so much,

    Imaging the wrist and hand
    Patients are positioned for wrist and hand radiographs according to standardized protocols, so that normal patterns can be discerned and abnormalities can be more readily identified.

    The standard views of the wrist and hand are:
    Posteroanterior (PA)
    Posteroanterior oblique

    Supplemental views include:
    PA with the wrist in ulnar deviation-for closer examination of the scaphoid
    anteroposterior view with the hand in 45° oblique position (also called the ball catcher view)-useful in early arthritis

    Just to be clear I am going to post a 2vw hand and 2vw wrist, correct? (At the minimum)
