    Default Fluoroscopic Guidance - Can someone please help me

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please help me with basic fluoroscopic guidance documentation requirements? What is required for a procedure note and do I need a retreivable image (as in ultrasound)?

    Please help!

    Is there a more specific area or procedure that your MD is using fluoro with? What specialty are you coding for?

    I code for ED. We normally do not perform these procedures.

    I have a fb removal from the foot under fluoroscopic guidance. Also, I have a closed fx reduction under fluoroscopic guidance.
