Question:

What CPT code do I report for a shoulder X-Ray when the surgeon documented that he ordered and interpreted four views of the shoulder and documents the specific views?

Answer:

You will report CPT code 73030 Radiologic examination, shoulder; complete, minimum of two views since this code describes a complete radiologic examination of the shoulder. A minimum of two views must be performed to report this code as recommended.
