Fracture treatment and xrays

When performing fracture treatment, many of the surgeons use xrays and stress views. While xrays bundle with the fracture treatment, do the stress views also bundle with the fracture care codes? I am asking because my encoder doesn't show any CCI edits. Thanks!

re: Fracture treatment and xrays

If you are treating a stress fracture, it is still a fracture, the same rules apply. Look at the guidelines on definitions, they reflect orthopedic procedural treatment such as open, closed, Percutaneous skeletal fixation, etc.
