    hey, do you check the note below V72.6# in tabular list?

    V72.6 is not to be used if any sign or symptoms, or reason for a test is documented.

    So, I think please check your report, if any sign ,symptoms are present then code for them if not then use it with V70.0 as Pdx.

    Hope this helps.
