Paper Abstract

The Unified Medical Language System metathesaurus and medical semantic network (National Library of Medicine, Meta 1.3, 1993) currently contains 270,797 medical terms derived from multiple controlled vocabularies, including ICD-9, ACR, MeSH, CPT, and SNOMED. We briefly describe the structure and content of Meta 1.3, focusing on its potential value to the radiological community.
