Definition: A Concept is an abstract thought about a thing, or things, in the world. It the basic unit of communication and each concept represents an atomic unit of thought that references a concrete or abstract thing. A single concept may be represented using either a single code, a defining expression or a structure of other concepts from which this concept is defined.

In SNOMED CT, each concept is uniquely identified by a concept ID, and a Fully Specified Name (FSN). SNOMED CT concepts may be formally defined in terms of their relationships with other concepts.
