Abstract
The Unified Medical Language System metathesaurus and medical semantic network (National Library of Medicine, Meta 1.3, 1993) currently contains 270,797 medical terms derived from multiple controlled vocabularies, including ICD-9, ACR, MeSH, CPT, and SNOMED. We briefly describe the structure and content of Meta 1.3, focusing on its potential value to the radiological community.
