    Question CPT codes for Suspected Pediatric Abuse
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello all!

    Are CPT codes 77074 & 7705 are for mets only or can we use those codes for a child's bone survey for suspected abuse. CPT 77076 is for infant which I think has to be 12 months or younger.

    Or do we have to charge by body part?


    Thanks in Advance!

    Either code can be used for a skeletal survey. 77076 specifically says for an infant so I would use 77075.
