    Hi All,

    I am rather new to radiology coding and I have ben seeing a lot of our doctors using xrays to confirm an NG Tube placement. Does anyone know a good code to use for this confirmation/verification? Thanks

    Is your provider placing the tube? Are they ordering a 1 view abdomen to confirm? If both are yes then they cant bill for the xray.

    Well my problem really is with the ICD-9 code (I should have been more specific). They are billing for a single view chest xray to confirm but they are not giving any sort of impression as opposed to simply just stating that "placement is confirmed"...any ideas?

    V53.59 I have been trying to determine appropriate use of codes in Category V53.5 and I believe this would be helpful to you...fitting and adjustment of gastrointestinal appliance/device. Any feedback would be appreciated by me as well. Thanks
