NEHTAPATH Specimen Types (Australian Pathology Specimen Types Terminology Reference Set)

Versions are available here:

note 1: The full reference set and SNOMED-CT distribution files are available from NEHTA, under licence.

note 2: Readers may also be interested to compare these specimen type descriptions with the 175 very different ones available in the LOINC "SYSTEM" hierarchy, included here for reference ( from the 2009 LOINC release ), noting that LOINC conflates specimen types, anatomical sites, organs and physiological systems into a single axis called "SYSTEM".
