Laterality is not stored for NoSpecimen items in some cases
Description (last modified by )
The scenario we have found so far is:
SpecimenCoreBiopsyis registered with a given laterality
Caseis registered with the same laterality
- Some time later referral form is received but no speciemen
- The registration wizard allow the user to select laterality, and pre-selects the laterality of the existing
SpecimenCoreBiopsyitem. If the user changes the laterality everything is created as expected and the existing items are updated.
- If the user leaves the laterality unchanged (most common case) the
NoSpecimenitem is created but no laterality is set.
Workaround is to manually set the laterality on the
Regarding step 4 in the procedure above: The wizard gives no indication that an existing specimen has been registered already and no warning if the laterality is modified. This could be improved.
