    For instance 79370-3 XR Shoulder GE 2 Views.

    Please tell me what the GE stands for?  I sure hope this in not Vendor related.

    Hello Jess,

    I dug down into the RSNA Playbook mentioned on the other point, and refer you to 5.2.1 Aggregation on page 194 of the LOINC User’s Guide. “The syntax for representing greater than or equal to and less than or equal to a specific number of views is “GE <#>” and “LE <#>” respectively.

    I can assure you nothing is vendor related.

    Have a great day,
