Loinc mapping multiple exams in a single result

How should a CT of the chest abdomen and pelvis in a single result report be LOINC coded?

Currently there is no LOINC term with a system of Chest+Abdomen+Pelvis. My suggestion would be to use the LOINC term with Abdomen+Pelvis, and another LOINC term for Chest alone.

We can also discuss this at the next Clinical LOINC meeting to determine if this type of combination should be considered.
