Code Descriptions

Common Usage Name Definition SNOMED CT Fully Specified Name SNOMED CT Concept ID
Low Dose Rate Brachytherapy - Temporary Placement Radiation treatment that irradiates a treatment volume with temporarily placed radiation sources delivering low dose rates (typically less than or equal to 2 Gy/hour). Low dose rate brachytherapy using temporary radioactive source (procedure) 1156708005
Low Dose Rate Brachytherapy - Permanent Placemet Radiation treatment that irradiates a treatment volume with permanently placed radiation sources delivering low dose rates (typically less than or equal to 2 Gy/hour). Internal radiotherapy - permanent seeds (procedure) 169359004
Pulsed Dose Rate Brachytherapy Internal or surface radiation treatment that irradiates a treatment volume in short pulses (typically 10 to 30 minutes in every hour) with a stronger source than low dose rate brachytherapy (typically treatment rates up to 3 Gy/hour). Pulsed dose rate brachytherapy (procedure) 1156384006
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy Internal or surface radiation treatment that irradiates a treatement volume with high dose rates of radiation (typically greater than 12 Gy/hour). High dose brachytherapy (procedure) 394902000
Electronic Brachytherapy A modality of internal or surface radiation that uses X-ray sources instead of radionuclides to deliver high rates of radiation. High dose rate electronic brachytherapy (procedure) 438629002
Radiopharmaceutical Therapy The use of radioactive drugs that can be given by mouth, infused, or injected. Administration of radiopharmaceutical (procedure) 440252007

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
