    1. Can you use CPT 73520 for a frog leg lateral view of both hips and an AP pelvis?

    2. Would you use CPT 73510 for a frog lateral view of the hip and an AP pelvis or would it be CPT 73500 & 72170?

    I have received information that the AP pelvis can also be used as the AP view of each hip.

    I would say that 73520 would be most accurate the codes 73500 and 72170 i believe would create a problem for you the pelvis and frog views meet the description of 73520 which is a min of 2 view of each hip in which one of them is an ap pelvis, I am also an xray tech as well as a coder that is my take on it but you might see if there are any other opinions.
