    Default UGI & SMALL BOWEL no picts

    AAPC: Back to School
    Help... My brain is still sleeping.

    1.How would you code these procedures? Doc says examination is limited as fluoroscopic guided spot views could not be obtained for this UGI &SMALL BOWEL.

    2.I also have patient that an Esophagram was ordered, but all they did was have him drink barium and then took a couple pictures. No Fluoro was used, No radiologist here at that time.

    Thankyou so much for your time.

    Default limted exam

    They have us add a 52 mod since the test was still done by the tech....what is the reason it was not obtained?

    This was a child that could not drink on the table, so Mom held and fed him laid him back on the table and they just just took plain films.
