Because the Module supports one container with multiple specimens, the Module can be used with an image of:
A single specimen associated with a container
One or more specimens out of several in the same container
All specimens in the same container
However the Module is not designed for use with an image of:
Multiple specimens that are not associated with the same container, e.g., two gross specimens (two Parts) on a photography table, each with a little plastic label with their specimen number.
Multiple containers that hold specimens (e.g., eight cassettes containing breast tissue being x-rayed for calcium).
Such images may be included in the Study, but would not use the Specimen Module; they would, for instance, be general Visible Light Photographic images. Note, however, that the LIS might identify a “virtual container” that contains such multiple real containers, and manage that virtual container in the laboratory workflow.
