Lisa, when our rehab doctors use fluoro for guidance on the spine injections, they always bill it, with the 26 modifier, since it's hospital equipment. The radiologist is not reading that - fluoro is "real-time", so unless that radiologist is in the room, I don't see how they could bill! I don't have any urologists - but similarly, my hepatologist uses ultrasound guidance for needle biopsies, as do the endocrinologists - they bill the U/S (with a 26 if done at the hospital, without for the thyroid since usually done in the office), and there is no radiologist charge. Again, this is done in real-time and there's nothing sent to a radiologist to view/interpret. How are they getting the charges to bill out? Just from the hospital?
