Release Amd 169/2010

Interim Clinical Imaging Procedure Codes

Number Amd 169/2010
Title Version 8; Withdrawal of Korner Data

This release removes the requirement to collect Korner bandings locally. The nationally approved coding scheme for imaging procedures (NICIP) will no longer include mappings to the Korner bandings.

There is no longer any national need to collect local information using the Korner datasets originally developed in the 1980s. In light of there being no other known national use or case for collecting Korner data, the CIMG determined that there was no need to maintain and distribute this mapping from NICIP for existing or new codes.

It has subsequently been reported that, despite this change in national policy, some imaging departments still believe it necessary to collect the Korner data. This release confirms that there is no requirement to collect this information nationally and therefore that the national approved coding scheme for individual procedure recording (NICIP) will no longer include the Korner mappings.
