Representation for anatomy

For full details on creation of new anatomy concepts, please see here: Representation for laterality

 

  • All lateralized anatomy concepts should be fully defined. 
  • Bilateral concepts for anatomy are not allowed.
  • Bilateral disorders or procedures should be modeled using two role groups, one for each lateralized anatomy concept.

7.6.1 Right and left disorders terms

Descriptions:

  • FSN: X disorder of right eye (disorder)

  • PT: X disorder of right eye

Conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute anterior uveitis of right eye (disorder)

  • PT: Acute anterior uveitis of right eye 

7.6.2 Bilateral terms

Descriptions: should follow the same form as the right and left terms:

  • FSN: X disorder of bilateral eyes (disorder)

  • PT: Bilateral X disorder

  • SYN: X disorder of bilateral eyes

  • SYN: X disorder of both eyes

Conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute iritis of bilateral eyes (disorder)

  • PT: Bilateral acute iritis

  • SYN: Acute iritis of bilateral eyes

When the morphology implies the finding site it is not necessary to specifically name the site in the FSN:

 Conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute iritis of left eye (disorder)

  • PT: Acute iritis of left eye

  Non-conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute iritis of iris of left eye (disorder)

When the morphology is a subpart of a region, then add the term “region” to the FSN:

 Conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of left eye region (disorder)
  • PT: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of left eye region

Bilateral conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of bilateral eye regions (disorder)
  • PT: Bilateral acute lacrimal caniculitis
  • SYN: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of bilateral eye regions
  • SYN: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of both eye regions

Non-conformant example:

  • FSN: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of left eye (disorder)
  • FSN: Acute lacrimal caniculitis of right lacrimal canaliculitis (disorder)
