10.10 Resource BodyStructure - Content

Orders and Observations icon Work GroupMaturity Level: 1 Trial UseSecurity Category: Patient Compartments: Patient

Record details about an anatomical structure. This resource may be used when a coded concept does not provide the necessary detail needed for the use case.

The BodyStructure resource contains details about the anatomical location of a specimen or body part, including patient information, identifiers, as well as text descriptions and images.

When needed, it allows the the representation of complex body structures and/or locations using the included and excluded elements. Also, it provides for the addition of qualifiers such as laterality and directionality to the anatomic location for those use cases where pre-coordination of codes is not possible. The BodyStructure resource supports recording and tracking of an anatomic location or structure on a patient outside the context of another resource. For example it can be the target of a Procedure or Observation resource.

The BodyStructure resource is not intended to substitute for precoordination of codes. If precoordination of codes is supported by an implementation the codeableConcept should be used. This resource is not intended for describing the type of anatomical location but rather a specific body site on a specific patient.
