    Default Nuclear Thyroid question

    AAPC: Back to School
    A patient comes in day 1 at 9am and receives the capsule. 6 hours later a 6 hour uptake and images are performed. Day 2 at 9am the patient comes back for the 24 hour uptake and scan. What is the appropriate way to code this study? Just a 78007 or is there opportunity to use the 78006 AND 78007?

    Does anybody know the answer to this question? Please, Please help!
