    Default Basic radiology question about 74230

    AAPC: Back to School
    So code 74230 - Swallowing function, with cineradiography/videoradiography

    Is usually done with the speech pathologist and the radiologist does the read and report.

    How are most coding this for a radiologist? Key thing radiologist usually is not in the room.

    Thank you,

    74230-26 (Modifier 26 for professional component)

    Perhaps this is the answer to your question.

    If your doc is doing an interp of the images, then yes, 74230-26. The speech pathologist will be billing 92611.
