CCCC.3 Differences of Note Between TID_5200 and TID 5300

CCCC.3.1 Report Sections

In TID 5200 “Echocardiography Procedure Report”, containers and headings were used to facilitate the layout of printed/displayed reports by collecting measurements into groups based on concepts like anatomical region. Further, TID 5200 permitted Ultrasound Systems to add new sections freely, TID 5300 “Simplified Echo Procedure Report” does not. Section usage was a source of problematic variability for receivers of TID 5200. TID 5300 constrains this. When such groupings are useful, for example when printing reports, it makes more sense to configure it in one place (in the receiving database/reporting system) rather than configuring such groupings independently (and possibly inconsistently) on each ultrasound device in a department. Receivers may choose to group measurements based on Finding Site or some other logic as they see fit. This avoids the problem of trying to keep many Ultrasound Systems in sync. SR objects are considered acquisition data/evidence. If the findings are transcoded into CDA reports, sections will likely be introduced in the CDA as appropriate.
