The general law for coding bilateral (if same kind and number of views taken bilaterally) X- rays is, take for example BILATERAL KNEE 3 VIEWS EACH, then the coding would be
73562 - 50
73562 with 2 units.
you can code them with either options, No need of appending RT and LT modifiers when you append 50 modifier.
Hope this helps!
