    Default Reduced Views on Radiology Films

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a one view study of the left ankle is performed and there is no code describing one view extremity studies, how would you code this? I am not sure between 73600-52 or an unlisted procedure.

    Default Reduced View

    Modifier 52 would be appropriate in this instance. If the lowest CPT reports 2 views and you did one, you would append modifier 52.

    I agree this is what I do to our charts.
