Use of SNOMED CT concept Identifiers to represent of a set of values for a property of a particular type of SNOMED CT component.


The SNOMED CT concepts used to represent concept enumerations are usually subtype children (or descendants) of a relevant general concept in the SNOMED CT metadata hierarchy. Each possible value is represented by a single child concept, and the set of values can be used to enable selection from a pick-list of one or more concepts.
