Radiology code for knee/3 foot standin

  1. Default Radiology code for knee/3 foot standin
    Exam Training Packages
    What code to use for a long xray of the knee that is an anterior view to include top of thigh to ankle. Would 73565(both knees), with a mod 52 to indicate only one knee adn add 73590 (tibia)? Or,
    is there another code or way to bill this? This view is used for mapping for total knee arthroplasty

    Default X-ray of thigh to ankle
    Perhaps you should use 76100. Other than using three different codes for the femur, knee and tib/fib, there aren't many options
