TID 300 Measurement

This Template provides a general structure for a numeric measurement, together with evaluations of its normality and/or significance, and the inference source(s) for its value. This structure is instantiated by inclusion of this Template with specific contextual parameters from a parent Template.

$Equation Coded term or Context Group for the equation or table from which the measurement was derived or computed
$ImagePurpose Purpose of Reference for an image used as a source of the measurement
$WavePurpose Purpose of Reference for a waveform used as a source of the measurement
$RefAuthority Bibliographic reference or authority for statistical properties of a reference population
$RangeAuthority Bibliographic reference or authority for the normal range of the measurement
$DerivationParameter Coded term or Context Group for Concept Name of a derivation parameter

NL
Rows 9, 10 The INFERRED FROM items allow the specification (by-value or by-reference) of numeric values that were used in the derivation of the numeric measurement of Row 1. The nature of the inference is not explicitly conveyed; it may be implicit in the Concept Names of the measurements. Inference by-reference is valid only in SOP Classes that permit the INFERRED FROM relationship by-reference.
Row 16 Equivalent Meaning of Concept Name allows the creating application to specify the preferred composed concept name representing the measurement and the associated post-coordinated concept modifiers. The concept modifiers may include those specified in this template, in a template that invokes this template, or at the option of the creating application in accordance with section 6.2.4. This composed concept name may be rendered by a display application.
