*Problem*

In the DRG names for following DRG the word radioaktiva inlägg (“radioactive posts”) is part of the name. Are there any requirements for radioactive posts in definition tables?

The DRG involved are:

* O28E Skrapning, konisering och radioaktiva inlägg, för maligna tumörer, ej komplicerat (Former DRG 363N Curettage, konisering and radioactive posts, for malignant tumors, not complicated)
* O28C Skrapning, konisering och radioaktiva inlägg, för maligna tumörer komplicerat (Former DRG 363C Curettage, konisering and radioactive posts, for malignant tumors complicated)
* O29O Skrapning, konisering och radioaktiva inlägg, öppenvård (Former DRG 364O Curettage, konisering and radioactive posts, outpatient)

No analysis is needed. This is something that concern Sweden only.
