    Default Knee x-rays

    The MD is ordering bilateral standing AP of knees and bilateral laterals. Is this 73565 and 73560? I appreciate any help.

    Code 73565 can be coded only if it is the only exam done. When additional views are done with the standing AP bilateral, you count the views for each knee and code the appropriate codes by number of views.

    73560rt and 73560 lt
