The Media resource contains photos, videos, and audio recordings. It is used with media acquired or used as part of the healthcare process. Two typical usages include: (i). Photos and videos of diagnostic or care provision procedures for recording purposes, (ii). Images contained in diagnostic reports.

The Media resource captures a specific type of Observation – an Observation whose value is audio, video or image data. This resource is the preferred representation of such forms of information as it exposes the metadata relevant for interpreting the information. However, in some legacy environments, media information may occasionally appear in Observation instead. Systems should be aware of this possibility.
The Media resource is able to contain medical images in a Digital Imaging and COmmunications in Medicine (DICOM) format. These images may also be made accessible through an ImagingStudy resource, which provides a direct reference to the image to a Web Access to DICOM Objects (WADO)-RS server.
For such images, the WADO-RS framework is a preferred method for representing the images – the WADO-RS service may include rendering the image with annotations and display parameters from an associated DICOM presentation state, for instance.
On the other hand, the media resource allows for a robust transfer of an image across boundaries where the WADO-RS service is not available. For this reason, medical images can also be represented in a Media resource, but the Media.content.url should provide a reference to a source WADO-RS service for the image.

|Concept_Name||Name of the concept in the FHIR structure.||string||required : 1|
|Computer_Ready_Name||A Computer-ready name (e.g. a token) that identifies the structure - suitable for code generation. Note that this name (and other names relevant for code generation, including element & slice names, codes etc) may collide with reserved words in the relevant target language, and code generators will need to handle this.||string||-|
|Type||The type the structure describes.||string||-|
|Dollar_Ref||The "$ref" string value contains a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) which identifies the location of the JSON value being referenced.||string||-|
|Description||A free text natural language description of the structure and its use.||string||-|
|Items||The value of the keyword should be an object or an array of objects. If the keyword value is an object, then for the data array to be valid each item of the array should be valid according to the schema in this value.||string||-|
|Required||The value of the keyword should be an array of unique strings. The data object to be valid should contain all properties with names equal to the elements in the keyword value.||string||-|
|Const||The value of this keyword can be anything. The data is valid if it is deeply equal to the value of the keyword.||string||-|
