Part Descriptions

LP40224-5   Microscopic observation
Microscopy is a technique that uses microscopes to examine very small objects, not seen by the naked eye. There are three well-known branches of microscopy: optical, electron and scanning probe microscopy. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP264599-4   Cornea/Conjunctiva
The "Cornea/Conjunctiva" System in LOINC encompasses both the cornea and conjunctiva, which are contiguous structures in front of the eye. This System is used for LOINC terms that represent tests run on either corneal or conjunctival specimens (e.g., swabs) and does not imply that both the corneal and conjunctiva were sampled in any given instance.
