Note

  1. These terms are distinct from the gender of a subject for administrative purposes, although the default value for clinical sex is often based on the administrative gender (e.g., see TID 1007 “Subject Context, Patient”). The administrative value "O" from Patient's Sex (0010,0040) maps by default to "undetermined" for clinical purposes.

  2. This Context Group in a prior edition of the Standard included codes improperly attributed to ISO 5218.

  3. These terms are derived from the terminology and codes for sex in ASTM E1633-02a "Standard Specification for Coded Values Used in the Electronic Health Record."
