    Default VP Shunt

    I have a nasal bone xray, chest xray and an abdomen xray all to ensure a VP Shunt is placed properly. I am looking for the V-Code, like the V58.82? that describes the VP Shunt. Can any body help?
    As I read through the radiology reports, there are no other indicators to support the medical necessity of the three procedures.

    If they are just checking status then I would use V45.2. If there is a documented problem, then look at 996.2.
