SDTM v2.0 is the first major release since the model's original publication in 2004. Among many modifications and updates, the most significant change is that variable metadata is represented in a new structure.
This article was written to explain why there are so many Analysis Data Model (ADaM) documents and to help the ADaM user see how they have been designed to work together.
The SDTMIG directs that, under certain circumstances, variables can be populated with the values "MULTIPLE" or "OTHER". Neither of these values is what might be called a "proper" value for the variable (i.e., a value that provides the the kind of information intended to be represented in the variable). Instead, these special values indicate that there are either multiple proper values or that the proper value collected was not in the list of values presented on the data collection form.
A Summary of the Project
The Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) was established in 2015 for the advancement of medical discoveries that make life better for everyone. Working under the Prime Minister’s Cabinet and national ministries, AMED provides a single avenue for researchers and institutions seeking funding for medical research and development.
If you're trying to figure out how to represent imaging data in SDTM, it may be helpful to think about the similarities between an image and a specimen.
A sample taken from a subject for testing at a lab is a surrogate for the subject. Results of tests on the specimen tell us something about the subject at the time the specimen was taken.
We have compiled a number of frequently asked questions to answer your inquiries about Controlled Terminology.
Unified Code for Units of Measure (UCUM) was developed by Regenstrief Institute and the UCUM Organization as an unambiguous system of units and their combinations. UCUM is intended to include all units of measure currently used internationally in science, engineering and business and has been adopted internationally by IEEE, DICOM, LOINC, and HL7, and is also in the ISO 11240:2012 standard.
SDTM describes several types of datasets. This diagram illustrates hierarchical view of these types of datasets. Findings may be findings about a study subject or about an associated person. A finding record can be linked to supplemental qualifiers, to comments, or to other records via relationships represented in RELREC.
