Is diagnostic system equipments (CT, MRI, etc.) exposure data also included in the 'Device' area?
I know we can indirectly figure out the exposure from procedure records like "4303663 | CT angiography | procedure | SNOMED", but I wonder if we can also transform EMR diagnostic device applied data to device_exposure itself.
And I wonder if there is some cases of converting those data with device concepts.
The concepts of the device area seems to be mostly consumable items, but according to the device_exposure table description below, it seems that the diagnostic equipment can also be converted.
The device exposure domain captures information about a person's exposure to a foreign physical object or instrument that which is used for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes through a mechanism beyond chemical action. Devices include implantable objects (e.g. pacemakers, stents, artificial joints), medical equipment and supplies (e.g. bandages, crutches, syringes), other instruments used in medical procedures (e.g. sutures, defibrillators) and material used in clinical care (e.g. adhesives, body material, dental material, surgical material).
The following concepts are not the exact one what I mean, but seem to be related.
4290594 'Endoscope' (SNOMED)
45771689 'MRI system gantry' (SNOMED)
45768256 'Computed tomography system thermography system' (SNOMED)
