    Question Radiology Consultation

    We have code 76140 for consultant reading of an x-ray. What code is used when you have a radiologist report of an MRI or CT in which a request is made for consultation from a neuroradiologist?

    Same code, 76140, regardless of which type of radiology report is being consulted on.
