    Post Can you charge application of stress 77071 during surgery?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can you charge 77071 when performed during surgery? The surgeon states the results of the stress inversion view in his operative note.
    Can you charge an ankle x-ray 73600- 52 with a 26 modifier for the ankle xray interpretation? Or is all this inclusive with the surgery code?
    Thank you so much for your help.
