A modeling approach used in SNOMED CT to represent anatomical entities such as body organs, systems, or regions.

Notes

  • Structure is the most general way to refer to an organ, body system, or region.
  • Entire refers to a complete organ, body system, or region.
  • Part refers to a part of an organ, body system, or region. Part does not refer to the entire organ, body system, or region.

Example
