Version 2.77


{Imaging modality} is used for image-guided procedures, where the particular type of imaging used is not specified in the orderable. For example, liver biopsies may be performed under ultrasound or CT guidance, and the particular modality used may be at the discretion of the operator. In such cases, {Imaging modality} indicates imaging guidance not further specified. This concept corresponds to the RP (radiology procedure) concept used in RSNA's RadLex Playbook.
