ValueSet: Human Specimen Type Value Set

Official URL: http://hl7.org/fhir/us/mcode/ValueSet/mcode-human-specimen-type-vs Version: 2.1.0
Active as of 2023-01-13 Maturity Level: 1 Computable Name: HumanSpecimenTypeVS

Specimen taken from a human subject. The values include the subset of codes in the HL7 Specimen Type code system (https://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem-v2-0487.html) representing body sites and body fluids likely to be used in tumor marker or genomic testing. The most specific term available should be used, for example, for arterial blood, use #BLDA not #BLD.

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
