Infant upper and lower extremity codes

  1. #1
    Question Infant upper and lower extremity codes
    Medical Coding Books
    Do you have the reference that defines an infant as <1 yr old and therefore that that code should not be used in kids >1 yr of age? for cpt codes 73092 and 73592. Or can these codes be used for children up to 24 months. CPT book does not give a decription on age it just states infant, are we to assume the infant is 0-12 months. HELP!

    You can use those code to children also because in Lay Description says "Infant or child" must first be immobilized to prevent
    movement during the film taking.I hope this will help to you.

    So the age of the child would you then say up to 24 months or older, or stops at 24 months. I have see this somewhere, i know i have. Im still kind of confused.
