Part 2 Technoiogy Thesaurus anc! Assessment Report Citations

MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT DIRECTORY Part 2: Assessment Report Citations Listed by Technology This part has two major sections: a 1,200-term technology thesaurus beginning on page 313, and a listing of assessment report citations by technology beginning on page 361. The listing of assessment report citations is arranged according to the terminology set forth in the technology thesaurus. Referring to the technology thesaurus first is the best way to search for assessment report citations by technology. To enhance searching, the thesaurus includes many synonyms, acronyms, and cross- references, and indicates broader and narrower terms to lead users to desired citations. The thesaurus uses the following reference terms: BT NT SEE x _1 . 1 . ~ ~ indicates to the user a broader term under which additional citations may be listed. Most, but not all, BTs have additional citations. Some terms have more than one BT. This is the complementary reference to NT. indicates to the user a narrower term under which additional citations are listed. This is the complementary reference to BT. refers the user to a searchable term, i.e. a synonym or closely related term under which citations are listed, from a non-sear- chable term. This is the complementary reference to x. indicates a non-searchable term, i.e. a synonym or closely related term, from which the user may have been referred to the present searchable term. This is the complementary refer- ence to SEE. SEE ALSO refers the user to a related, though not necessarily synony- mous, searchable term. 312
