    Vol 3 ICD-9 CM is used for inpatient facility coding only. If the patient is inpatient and the you are coding for facility billing then you use Vol 3 codes if this is outpatient then you use the CPT codes and if your radiologist is not providing the official interpretation then you add the TC modifier.
