    Default Fluoroscopic guidence 77002

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a chart that is just the fluoroscopy report. Header states Fluoroscopy for Kyhoplasty. Clinical history: C-arm fluroscopy was utilized by Dr X. ( differnt physician)
    Next the report gives the description of the procedure 77002.
    I can not find anything that states that this can be reported alone. Does anyone know of anything different?

    Thank you

    Per Dr. Z's Interventional Radiology coding guide pg. 332 coding instructions:
    1. "CPT codes for kyphoplasty are all-inclusive codes ( except guidance, which may be coded separately)"

    3. " Guidance codes may be billed in addition to the kyphoplasty procedure code."
