CID 3629 Procedure Intent

This Context Group specifies the intent for a procedure or a procedure step, depending on the context of invocation. The intent for a procedure step may be different than that of the procedure in which it occurs.

Note

  1. For example, a surgical biopsy procedure may have "Diagnostic Intent", while the imaging procedure step within that procedure may have "Guidance Intent".

  2. Collection of specimens is generally "Diagnostic Intent"; "Forensic Intent" is typically used for autopsies; "Palliative Intent" and "Adjuvant Intent" may apply to certain radiotherapy procedures.

  3. In SNOMED-CT, "Staging Intent" is a subsidiary concept (refinement) of "Diagnostic Intent". The following are subsidiary concepts of "Therapeutic Intent": Adjunct, Adjuvant, Curative, Neo-adjuvant, Prophylactic, and Supportive. Prophylactic is also a subsidiary concept of Preventive intent.
