Coding Schemes

GALEN includes services which allow annotation of concepts with codes from external coding schemes. The intention is to allow linking of the GALEN CORE with existing medical coding schemes. Volume J provides detailed descriptions of the services available to support this activity.

It is rather difficult to illustrate the code conversion capabilities of GALEN with the tutorial's transport example. However, the coding services can be seen simply as a more sophisticated version of the extrinsics mechanism described above.
