I'm looking for the correct code and Perferred Term for a Full Body Magnertic Resonance Imaging Scanner. I have a list, but it has multiple codes for similar descriptions
Magnetic resonance imaging system 41801 Synonym for: MRI system, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging unit 35728 Synonym for: MRI system, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging unit, extremity 36294 Synonym for: MRI system, extremity imaging, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging unit, full-body 36293 Synonym for: MRI system, full-body, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging unit, mammographic 36295 Synonym for: MRI system, mammographic, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) unit 16260 Synonym for: MRI system, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) unit, extremity 18109 Synonym for: MRI system, extremity imaging, <specify>

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) unit, full-body 18108 Synonym for: MRI system, full-body, <specify>
Can anyone explain how this system works and which code & description to use?

Poorly.

There are several elements of the US FDA and EC MDD medical device regulatory systems where expert users would likely agree that one approach is better than the other, and should be the way that the eventual harmonization proceeds.

Neither system handles product codes in a way that's consistent, self-evident and unambiguous.
