    Default Physician & Radiology

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone.. We need some help !!

    We have a Physician who send a PT out for Radiology,
    and the Radiologist , Took the x-ray, read the x-ray and Enterperted the
    x -ray.

    Now the same Physician is trying to say he wants to get credit for that
    X-ray. And we have tried to explain to him that he did not do the xray, he only reviewed it after it was Finished .

    Does anyone know where we can find any guidlines on this or about this
    on any web site?

    The only place the ordering physician "gets credit" for the Xray is in the data points for medical decision making of the E/M service.

    Hope that helps.
