Pavla Frazier

An Evaluation of LOINC, RadLex and SNOMED CT as Complementary Terminologies for Radiology and Imaging Report Representation as Tested on NIH Radiology and Imaging Content.

Location: HSEB 5750C (BMI Conference Room)
Date: May 2, 2012
Time: 1:00 pm

Supervisory Committee: Stanley Huff, M.D.; Bruce Bray, M.D.; John Hurdle, M.D., Ph.D.


The objective of this study proposal is to assess the adequacy of conceptual coverage by LOINC, SNOMED CT and RadLex for Radiology and Imaging report needs using a subset of National Institutes of Health (NIH) names for tests, findings and values as the basis for the analysis. The main hypothesis of this study proposal is that the combination of LOINC, SNOMED CT and RadLex will represent concepts needed better than any of these used individually or in paired combination only.
