    OR requests imaging to provide fluro during an OR procedure. Procedure is Kypoplasty 22523/22524 and cannot be reported w/fluro. The Dr. is provideing all services and only asks the Rad. tech to provide a film. Can we code a 72291 for the radiology services?

    Report reads as

    Interp:
    Reason for Exam: Kyphoplasty

    Technique: Fluro serivce provided to the surgeon in the OR by the Rad. Department from 0730 until 0910 hours. 3 Minutes 10 secs Fluro was used, no radiologist present, Four images submitted

    Since no radiologist services were provided by rad facility (I believe for which you are coding), then you can go ahead with 72291 with mod TC.
