We accession the peripheral smear into our Clinical Microscopy module of 
the computer program.  We stain the slide, coverslip it and give it to the 
pathologist with a hematology CBC print out.  The pathologist interprets 
the slide and dictates the report.  The transcriptionist types the report 
(much like any surgical report).  The pathologist reviews the completed 
transcription and either makes corrections or electronically finalizes it. 
 It then is available to all personnel to view in the computer system.
We charge an 85060 for the professional fee.  I am not aware of a 
technical fee we can charge.

[Histonet] Peripheral smear

Our pathologist review peripheral smears for the clinical lab, and I'm
wondering how other facilities handle the reporting.  We presently
receive the smear from a tech,  the pathologist provides a comment and
returns it to the lab.
