      We intend to add device info in future versions of the ballot, but currently the working software that would use the Breast Imaging FHIR IG does not keep this detailed device info in their records. 

      There is a lot of work occurring on device information, especially in regards to a forthcoming FHIR IG for the "Unique Device Identification (UDI) Exchange", and we will integrate the results of that into the Breast Imaging FHIR IG when the UDI FHIR IG is published.
