Showing content of <summary> tag in a Conceptual Topic

I have created a Conceptual topic describing the class diagram. In that, I have provided links to the classes using <codeEntityReference> element. I want to display the class description also along with it by picking the information of <summary> tag from the assembly.

Is it possible?

There are no MAML elements that will let you do that. XML comments information is also not imported by the conceptual configuration file. It may be possible to do it with a custom element but you'd probably have to make a significant number of changes to the configuration file and presentation style to handle importing the comments and to handle all of the various XML comments elements that may appear in the summary comments if you wanted to support them as well from the conceptual content XSL templates (the <see> element for example).
