    After rummaging some more in the files, it appears the Term Descriptions may be the text that is found in the Comments field of the data file. Can someone at Regenstief confirm or refute this?

    Thank you.

    Thank you, John.

    Our counts agree with yours when the codes for Loinc parts are not included in the data set; we do include them and saw the large drop between 2.42 and 2.46. I don’t know if this reflects a cleanup of the Regenstrief data, or a change in the UMLS files from which we derived the codes or some other issue.

    I appreciate the reassurance that we aren’t missing any of the key LOINC codes.
