Use Case Description:
|Two independent autopsies of bone evidence disagree on how the material should be sexed. They agree that the individual was likely a murder victim who had disappeared, and that appropriate sexing will be essential in identifying the individual.|
Autopsist 1: Individual who performed the first autopsy.
Autopsist 2: Individual who performed the second autopsy.
|Individuals disagreeing on sexing procedure which may affect patient-identification algorithms.|
Alternative and/or related Workflow(s):
Workflow if bone evidence is submitted for X-ray/CAT scan:
Alignment and/or Misalignment with Gender Harmony Model:
The primary workflow involves multiple information components which cannot be represented adequately outside of the Gender Harmony Model.
The alternative workflow presented can function within DICOM by coercing the SFCU into Patient Sex (0010,0040) (as missing). The Gender Identity (unknown) will be lost in the conversion as it currently stands.
Current Standard Support:
- HL7 V2.x
- HL7 V3
- HL7 FHIR
|DICOM Resource: DICOM would likely not be involved in the primary workflow. However, in the alternative workflow, SFCU would likely be coerced into Patient Sex and Gender Identity would be lost in conversion, unless there is updating of systems.|
