LOINC Table, Reports, and Users’ Guide

The LOINC table includes fields for the LOINC codes and each of the six parts of the fully-specified name. There are many other fields (described in the Users' Guide) that contain synonyms, comments, and other information. The LOINC table is available in several file formats.

The LOINC distribution also includes several LOINC Accessory Files and other documentation.

LOINC Table Changes File

Contains all records that have been edited since the last release, including changes in many ancillary attributes such as RELATEDNAMES2, SHORTNAME, and COMMENT fields. We make lots of edits to such fields, so most of these changes do not alter the LOINC term name. This file is in a Microsoft Access™ database format, compressed as a zip file.

LOINC Table Changes Report

A report that highlights all the changes to the primary LOINC name fields since the last release. LOINC follows good terminology management practices, so these changes reflect modifications to our naming convention rules, style, and efforts for consistency rather that changes to the concept meaning.
