Chapter 20 / Radiotherapy

It is intended that planning codes (X6000-X6099) are to be used by both consultants and hospital providers. Delivery codes (X7000-X7099) are to be used by hospital providers only and clinical supervision codes (X0007-X0012) are to be used by consultants only for delivery.

Supplementary codes (X9000 - X9049) should be used in addition to delivery codes (X7000 - X7099) to add further information such as the use of image control or motion management techniques and should not be used alone.
