This book evolved from www.medicalese.org, the first place to look for new and elusive medical words, which has been online since July 11, 2001.

The book is intended for the worldwide medical transcription community. As such, it contains a great deal of technical language and would be of limited use to the layperson. Includes terms that are not found in the standard medical references, such as clinical trial acronyms, herbal remedies, products available outside the U.S., discontinued drugs, and unapproved cancer therapies. Medical students, nurses, doctors, coders, and other health professionals will also find useful information here.
