A comprehensive collection of abbreviations and the terms they represent from clinical medicine and medical sciences, with an appendix of journal-title abbreviations. This dictionary will be of value mainly for interpreting abbreviations, not for selecting proper abbreviated forms. Well-established conventions (such as italicized letters as symbols for variables) are ignored; the title abbreviations are not those most widely used in the United States, those of the National Library of Medicine's Index Medicus.
