Thread: LT/RT on Mammos

    Exclamation LT/RT on Mammos

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please excuse my ignorance here, but I have a question regarding the use of modifers LT and RT, please....

    Can these modifiers be used for mammos? For example, if the patient presented for a diagnositic mammo (unilateral) on the left breast, could you report 77055 LT? Thanks.
