3a. Project Scope

Changes are made to the BRIDG model based on work planned by FDA and NCI - we know there will be work, but at this point we are unclear what that will be. It will be similar in scope to that of previous releases. As an illustration BRIDG 5.3 was concerned with adding imaging semantics and updating a mapping; 5.2 was concerned with updates for anatomic pathology and specimen DAM modelling. The full release history is here: Any work of a greater scope than previously seen will be subject to separate approval.
