    Default can I code 73700 three times on same day

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need a little help.
    I have a Radiology Report that says CT scan of left hip CT scan of left knee and CT scan of left ankle.

    Can I code 73700-Lt three times with 76 modifer
    or do I list this just once?

    Thank you

    You would code the 73700-lt 3 times, 2 with modifier 59 due to different anatomic areas.
