Subject Re: Differences in dictionary built with dictionaryBuilder and sno_rx16ab from sourceforge
Date Fri, 14 Jun 2019 20:28:38 GMT
>From my experience, it seems pretty obvious that sno_rx_16ab is a curated
dictionary based on the SNOMED 2016AB release. It does not contain the full
set but it has additional edits and synonyms that are pretty useful
(including 'dm').
