Subject: [bioontology-support] How to use REST API to search for only ICD9 code for a term?


When I search term 'Laceration' with ontology limited to ICD9CM on<> (link below),

I received information like below, from the return message I could get an ICD9 code 620.6.
Broad ligament laceration syndrome - International Classification of Diseases, Version 9 - Clinical Modification (ICD9CM)<>
details<> - visualize - 149 more from this ontology<>

But when I use REST API, by submitting an URL below (API Key part is omitted)

I got a json file WITHOUT any ICD9 code at all.

So my question is, how to use REST API to get ICD9 code for a term like Laceration?

Thanks ahead for your help.

Best regards,
