    Hi Malar,

    I just did a quick search and also could not find the pulmonary function concepts you mentioned in your post.

    Nearly all of our terms are created based on submitted requests, and nobody to date has requested these pulmonary tests.

    You are welcome to request new LOINC codes for these concepts. We have detailed instructions on how to submit requests and the information we need as part of the request on our website: https://loinc.org/submissions/new-terms/.

    Thanks,
    Swapna

    Hi May,

    I just did a quick search and also could not find any terms for OncotypeDX in LOINC, and I don’t see any pending requests for these tests either.

    Nearly all of our terms are created based on submitted requests, and while I agree with Pam Banning (who replied to your previous post) that the performing laboratory knows the most about the test and ideally would be the one to request the terms, you are also welcome to request new LOINC codes for these tests.

    We have detailed instructions on how to submit requests and the information we need as part of the request on our website: https://loinc.org/submissions/new-terms/.

    Thanks,
    Swapna

    Hi Katy,

    The Group file in the June 2017 LOINC release did not contain any radiology terms, but the December release will likely include some radiology groups, including laterality roll-ups (i.e., left, right, bilateral, unilateral, unspecified). I presented these during the Clinical LOINC meeting in September as potential new groups for feedback, which is where you may have seen them.

    Thanks for your interest!
