This value set is used in the following places:

This value set includes codes from the following code systems:

  • Include these codes as defined in urn:oid:2.16.840.1.113883.
    C106046Magnetic Resonance ConditionalA device with demonstrated safety in the MR environment within defined conditions. At a minimum, address the conditions of the static magnetic field, the switched gradient magnetic field and the radiofrequency fields. Additional conditions, including specific configurations of the item, may be required. See ASTM F2503
    C106045Magnetic Resonance SafeThe device poses no known hazards resulting from exposure to any MR environment. MR Safe items are composed of materials that are electrically nonconductive, nonmetallic, and nonmagnetic. See ASTM F2503
    C106047Magnetic Resonance UnsafeThe device which poses unacceptable risks to the patient, medical staff or other persons within the MR environment. See ASTM F2503
    C113844Labeling does not Contain MRI Safety InformationInformation on the safety of using a device in a magnetic resonance (MR) environment has not been provided in the labeling by the labeler.
    C101673Labeled as Containing Natural Rubber LatexThe device label indicates natural rubber latex as a component.
    C106038Not Made with Natural Rubber LatexThe composition of the materials of an item do not contain natural rubber latex.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
