      In this spec, the word Type is used as a specifier in a number of places, like MassType, LymphNodeType, etc. We do not want to change it for just CalcificationType and feel it doesn't make sense to change MassType to MassMorphology.

      Description

      Calcification Type is more commonly referred to as Calcification Morphology - to describe the attribute of the observed calcifications. Suggest renaming "Calficication Type" to "Calcification Morphology"
