Good morning,

My question is for the code 73520 which states it is for hips, BILATERAL, min of TWO views EACH hip, including AP of pelvis. I am getting charges where the xray is for ONE hip ONLY including AP of pelvis. Is there a more appropriate code since it really concerns one hip only.. would it be incorrect to use 72170 plus 73510?? Or, is it proper to use the 73520and modifier 52 for a reduced service?

Thanks in advance for your help!
