    Default c-arm in office need help

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a Dr who wants to use the C-Arm in the office to do all her imaging and then print out the pictures to go in chart. Does anybody know if this can be done and how to bill for it?

    C-Arm is also a fluroscopy. 76000-TC if Dr. owns equipment. 76000-26 if reading report.

    Actually, if the physician is using the c-arm fluoroscopy to obtain views, you would report the appropriate plain view x-ray code by the amount of views taken.
