    Default sacrum and coccyx x-ray

    AAPC: Back to School
    The patient had three exams, limited lumbar spine(AP, lateral and coned view), sacrum(AP 1view) and coccyx(AP 1 view).
    A single AP view was performed of the sacrum, and a single AP view of the coccyx.
    The coned lateral view of lumbosacrum junction from the lumbar exam served as the lateral view for both the sacrum exam and the coccyx exam.
    How should I charge x-rays?

    Is there a separate report for all 3 exams?
