Posting additional PA x-rays in PracticeWorks charting.

We need some guidance on how to post additional PA x-rays.

We had a patient scheduled for a hygiene appointment.  The hygienist took 4 bitewing x-rays and two PA x-rays.  The patient was then moved to the doctor's operatory and an additonal PA was taken.  When it was taken the assistant highlighted the tooth # and hit the PA button.  This put code 0220 in the ledger.  The code was already in the ledger when the hygienist posted the PAs she took.  How do we set up charting to add an additonal PA after PAs have been posted to the ledger.

You can post additional PA (0230) if the button you use has options-autolinks to select 0230 instead of 0220.

You can also add logic that if there is a 220 already posted today for that patient "ignore the 0220" and use the 0230 for any remaining PA's
