CCCC.4.7 Additional Modifiers

The concept modifiers in the template are sufficient to accurately encode all the best practice echo measurements recommended by the ASE. Although TID 5302 “Post-coordinated Echo Measurement” is extensible and adding new modifiers is not prohibited, the meaning and significance of such new modifiers will generally not be understood by receiving systems, delaying or preventing import of such measurements. Further, adding modifiers that replicate the meaning of an existing modifier is prohibited.
