I was recently at a seminar and was told that if radiology professional services were performed during an operative session the physician did not have to dictate a seperate report. The instructor stated the interpretation could be under a seperate heading in the operative report. However if radiology professional services were provided in the office along with e/m service a seperate report was needed.

I am not able to find documention to support this information. Does anyone have an ideaS.

THANKS.
