Current Version - Under Revision

This section demonstrates how an 5.2.20 Ordered Reference Set is used to specify and display a customized navigation hierarchy . A navigation hierarchy is a hierarchical view of SNOMED CT concepts which may differ from the strict subtype hierarchy (represented by |is a| relationships ).

Navigation Hierarchy Example

To illustrate the way a navigation hierarchy is represent this section uses an example containing a set of concepts used to describe x-ray examinations of the upper and lower limbs. The resulting navigation hierarchy might usefully be extended to include other x-ray procedures but has been kept small for the purposes of the example.

Reference sets are created as explained in how to create a new Reference Set using an existing pattern and their Identifier , name and type are specified by a concept . The example reference set would be specified by a concept with the characteristics shown in .

These symbolic values are used to avoid any potential confusion with released reference sets . The moduleId represents the module in which the reference set was developed.

Note: Each of the symbolic names '<uuid-0211>' to '<uuid-0248>' in represents a unique 128-bit UUID generated by a standard algorithm. Use of the same symbolic names elsewhere in this example indicates a revised version of the same component with the same Identifier . Use of the same symbolic name in another example does not imply the same Identifier .

Figure 47. Example Navigation Reference Set - Updated Hierarchy View

Navigation Hierarchy Inheritance

A Navigation Reference Set may organize some concepts while allowing the subtype hierarchy (or another navigation hierarchy ) to provide additional hierarchical links. In this case, a concept that has no children in the navigation hierarchy inherits the children specified in the subtype hierarchy or a specified default navigation hierarchy .
