HI All! We doing ETL on oncology data and facing with table which contain specimens information. It has field called tumor_type. We thought to put those as disease_status_ in CDM.SPECIMEN table, but this opinion is wrong. We started to think, what’s from data we can define as disease_status_ . Through the field disease_status_concept_id SPECIMEN must be connected with CONDITION_OCCURRENCE, but I can’t find any information what we should to keep there. @Christian_Reich @MPhilofsky @Maria_ya can you help to clarify about it?
Wait wait. There is a whole Oncology WG dealing with that. Don’t think, ask (which you did).
What is in that field? Can you provide a list of values?
what is the purpose of SPECIMEN.disease_status_concept_id ?
and where should we report that? in ONCO WG github issue? it is not an issue but a question.
Sure, example of values:
|lung large cell carcinoma|
|unknown primary squamous cell carcinoma (scc)|
But source table describe specimen and these values describe tumor.
These values are diagnosis and should be loaded into CONDITION_OCCURRENCE table. The concept id for the listed values are:
4112738 lung adenocarcinoma
4110589 lung large cell carcinoma
36402371 unknown primary squamous cell carcinoma (scc)
