ConceptExamination of a lesion
DescriptionFindings observed during the physical examination of an identified macroscopic localised structural change or damage to normal tissue.
UseUse for recording findings observed during the physical examination of an identified macroscopic localised structural change or damage to normal tissue. This archetype is intended to be used to describe both benign and malignant lesions. This archetype is intended to be used to describe single localised lesions. To describe localised clusters of lesions such as a cluster of moles, use an appropriate CLUSTER archetype. This archetype may be nested inside such an archetype to describe single lesions which are part of the cluster. This archetype has been specifically designed to be used in the 'Examination findings' SLOT within the OBSERVATION.exam, CLUSTER.exam-skin or other CLUSTER.exam-archetypes, but can also be used within any other OBSERVATION, ACTION or CLUSTER archetypes, where clinically appropriate - for example, CLUSTER.exam-breast or CLUSTER.exam-penis. This archetype may be specialised to enable recording details only relevant to a subset of lesions. An example of this can be specialising the archetype for wounds/ulcers, to allow recording information about wound edges, wound bed, undermining, or exudate. Use to incorporate the narrative descriptions of clinical findings within existing or legacy clinical systems into an archetyped format, using the 'Clinical Description' data element.
MisuseNot to be used to record findings about an imaging lesion. Use the CLUSTER.imaging_exam-abnormality archetype for this purpose. Not to be used to record findings about non-localised or whole-organ eruptions such as a chickenpox rash covering the entire skin surface. Use the CLUSTER.symptom_sign archetype for this purpose. Not to be used to record a macroscopic pathology examination of a specimen from a lesion. Use an appropriate CLUSTER archetype within the OBSERVATION.laboratory_test_result archetype. Not to be used for recording the clinical history of a lesion - use specific OBSERVATION and CLUSTER archetypes, for example OBSERVATION.story and CLUSTER.symptom_sign.
PurposeFor recording findings observed during the physical examination of an identified macroscopic localised structural change or damage to normal tissue.
