    I have a question, 

    For CPT code 76811 do we only bill it out if they are able to get every picture listed for an anatomy scan?
    If they are unable to get every picture and the patients has to come back for a follow up anatomy to get the rest of the pictures do we still use 76811 or do we use 76805? 

    Thank you very much

    Hi David

    You can bill out the 76811, you just must list what structures were obtained/visualized/cleared and what was suboptimal 
    You must ATTEMPT to visualize all structures though - which is why being clear with what was seen/not seen will help justify your code selection.  When you bring them back you would bill the 76816 - follow-up on previous anatomy not cleared.
