Current Version - Under Revision
The Developer Toolkit,which is supplied as part of the SNOMED CT International Release , includes several tables that can be used to simplify and provide support for text searching.
- Description in which it is used;
- Concept associated with an active description in which the word is used.
There are also two Dualkey Tables. These tables link each abbreviated word pair to every:
- Description in which that pair of words is used;
- Concept in which the combined set of active descriptions contains that pair of words.
These tables are provided to assist implementation. However, use of these tables is optional, as developers may generate and use alternative search support resources.
An extended version of the Developer Toolkit, provides Java programs to generate indexes that may be useful to organizations that develop SNOMED CT Extensions.
