TID 5303 Adhoc Measurement

This Template codes numeric echo measurements where most of the details about the nature of the measurement are not communicated. The measurement is identified in terms of the property measured, such as Length, Diameter, Area, Velocity etc. and some measurement context may established by reference to spatial coordinates on an image or a waveform. A displayable label is included but there is no managed code identifying the measurement.

The template is intended to be used to include adhoc, one-time measurements whose need is determined during imaging exam or reviewing session.

Measurements that are taken in an adhoc fashion but are selected from the set of pre-coordinated or post-coordinated measurements that are configured on the Ultrasound System should be coded using TID 5301 “Pre-coordinated Echo Measurement” or TID 5302 “Post-coordinated Echo Measurement”.

Content Item Descriptions

Row 4

This may be used to label the measurement value when space is limited on the screen or report page. E.g. a Short Label of "LVIDD" might be provided for a measurement of the left ventricle internal diameter at end diastole.

Note

Short Labels are not standardized and may omit details of the measurement, thus it is not recommended to use them for purposes such as matching.
