we have implemented Management of Radiology Report Templates (MRRT) http://www.ihe.net/Technical_Frameworks/#radiology in the radiology module.
which are html files used as report templates. We have an implementation that extracts this metadata (as concept reference source/reference terms using the ConceptService) and stores
Set<ConceptReferenceTerm> terms into the MRRT template object into the openmrs DB.
These files are tagged with
term elements which reference entries in coding schemes like radlex or maybe snomed ct.
An example looks like so:
<coding_schemes> <coding_scheme name="RadLex" designator="2.16.840.1.113883.6.256" /> </coding_schemes> <term> <code meaning="brain" value="RID6434" scheme="RadLex"/> </term>
I still wonder about what the correct way is to enter radlex as
concept_reference_source into the DB. And how to properly retrieve it.
concept_reference_source.nameis not unique so I guess we have to be ready for the event of two rows with “RADLEX” as their name. Why is the name not unique? What would be a use case?
In MRRT they use the OID/UID as the designator. like shown here https://www.hl7.org/fhir/terminologies-systems.html
which I am able to insert in this column, and which would enable me to uniquely get the
concept_reference_source matching the
However, I see that in the CIEL dictionary SNOMED CT has for example
which I can find at Coding Scheme Designator http://dicom.nema.org/dicom/2013/output/chtml/part16/chapter_8.html
Which for radlex would be
hl7_code=RADLEX but this wouldnt help me in uniquely finding the
I would be very grateful for your input! Thanks a lot!
