Thread: CPT Codes on Radiology Reports

    Default CPT Codes on Radiology Reports

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm asking this on behalf of a friend in radiology.

    Do CPT codes need to be documented on a radiology report? Currenly they are being printed on the reports, but do they need to be there for any legal reason?
