    Default Cpt 75310/72170

    AAPC: Back to School
    This time of year, with people falling on the ice, I am getting a lot of radiology reports for er treatment of hip and pelvis x-rays. Many are seperate reports for each patient encounter. One showing a right hip x-ray with no mention of the pelvis, and another showing an AP of the pelvis. The way I understand the definition of 75310, it is for the unilateral view of the hip and an AP of the pelvis. I have been coding this 75310-52 since there is no mention of the pelvis.

    I have been feeling like this may not be correct but I have exhausted all my local resources and am getting shrugged shoulders. What other opinions are out there? How would you handle these?

    You can bill these two codes if both a 1vw Hip and Pelvis were done.
    73500 Hip 1vw
    72170 Pelvis 1 or 2vw

    Perhaps you are thinking of..
    73520 Bilateral Hips minimum 2vws of each hip, including AP view of Pelvis.

    (There is no 75310 CPT code)

    Hope this helps!
