      The modality and technique value sets were reviewed by the CODEX Radiation Therapy SMEs and deemed to be non-overlapping to the extent possible. Allowed combinations were also specified.

      Modality and Teqhnique will always be specified in tandem using the new http://build.fhir.org/ig/HL7/fhir-mCODE-ig/branches/modality-technique/StructureDefinition-mcode-radiotherapy-modality-and-technique.html
      extension, and the allowed combinations of modality and technique will be constrained using invariants to the combinations shown here:

      Treatment Type Modality Technique
      External Beam Radiotherapy Photons IMRT, VMAT, 3D, 2D, IORT
      External Beam Radiotherapy Electrons 3D, 2D, IORT
      External Beam Radiotherapy Neutrons 3D, NCT
      External Beam Radiotherapy Carbon Ions PPS, PSS, MIX
      External Beam Radiotherapy Protons PPS, PSS, MIX
      Brachytherapy Internal radiotherapy – permanent seeds Interstitial
      Brachytherapy Low Dose Rate using temp rad source Intracavitary, Interstitial, Surface
      Brachytherapy Pulsed Dose Rate Intracavitary, Interstitial
      Brachytherapy High Dose Rate Intracavitary, IMB, Interstitial, Intravascular, Intraluminal, IORT, Surface
      Brachytherapy High dose rate electronic Intracavitary, IMB, Interstitial, Intraluminal, IORT, Surface
      Brachytherapy Radiopharmaceutical Oral, Intravascular, Intracavitary, Interstitial

      Technique Acronyms:

      Acronym Meaning
      IMRT Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy
      VMAT Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy
      3D Three Dimensional Planning
      2D Two Dimensional Planning
      IORT Intraoperative Radiation Therapy
      NCT Neutron Capture Therapy
      PPS Particle Spot Scanning
      PSS Particle Passive Scattering

       

      The BrachytherapyTreatmentPhase and Teleradiotherapy TreatmentPhase profiles are no longer in mCODE (there were moved to the new CODEX Radiation Therapy IG), so this extension is used only in the mCODE Radiotherapy Course Summary profile.

      Description

      Modality and Technique Value Sets for Brachytherapy Treatment Phase, Radiotherapy Course Summary and Teleradiotherapy Treatment Phase.
      Between value sets (e.g., Brachytherapy and Radiotherapy) there are seems to be some overlapping values and some overlapping areas between modality and technique within the same type of therapy. For example, Radiotherapy Technique Value Set has Neutron capture therapy and Radiotherapy Technique Value Set there is Teleradiotherapy neutrons (procedure).
