Here is a briefing note from SNOMED International to inform on a proposed change to the body structure hierarchy and impact on related concepts.

Body structure concepts that specify male or female in descriptions and that are not unique to a specific gender (e.g. male/female breast) are to be considered for inactivation. The concepts modeled by these structures are also to be inactivated. It is proposed that the work for this update begins with the anatomy content for subtypes of 76752008|Breast structure (body structure)|.

Please see the attached briefing note for more information.

Comments and feedback on the proposal should be provided via this forum by Tuesday August 22, 2023.

Thank you
