SNOMED CT® Utilises the Brodmann Area Classification for Brain Regions (Updated February 15th 2017)

computer-keyboard-1380475577zzm

In previous posts, we looked at the history of SNOMED CT® and the increasing role of SNOMED CT® in healthcare systems internationally. In this series of posts, I will examine and assess the SNOMED CT® terminology and provide a broad description of the findings where necessary.

Looking at the SNOMED CT® terminology through the SNOMED CT® browser (see this post), I came across the Brodmann area terminology. This is not the only descriptive terminology used for brain regions – there is also a reference to specific neuroanatomical structures independent of the Brodmann terminology (e.g. Basal Ganglia and Capsules Structure). I have covered the Brodmann areas in previous posts (e.g. see here).

In terms of describing the Brodmann terminology, the SNOMED CT® terminology descriptor is 9 digits long and 8 levels deep in the ontological structure. As far as I could see the terminology does not include BA’s 13, 14, 15, 16, 27, 49, 50 and 51. The terminology also links to other sources.
