Radiology Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

CT of the Sacrum/Coccyx is ordered. How should this be coded?

Answer:

Use a code from the CT of pelvis section, 72192–72194. A code from 72192–72194 is the correct choice for this exam when the indication is specific to the study of the sacrum and coccyx, and they are completely studied and documented.
