    Default Radiology Coding Assistance Please

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having a moment :=)

    Need help on correct CPT code:

    Radiologic examination, complete, orbits, 3 views, optic foramina

    70200 or 70190

    with rationale please.

    That is what I thought however I guess I am having a brain freeze with this because it states orbits as well and 70190 does not have orbits. So with that said, would I use an unlisted cpt code? Thanks for the assistance!

    Could you use the 70200 with a -52 modifier? This gives you the foramina and the orbits with your 3 views.
