[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Zachary Lutterbie

Hello Zachary,

We import CPT into BioPortal from the National Library of Medicine’s UMLS [1]. Due to licensing restrictions, we aren’t able to offer a download link on our site for the ontology source file. If you’re a current UMLS license holder, please contact our technical program manager John Graybeal (cc’ed) to discuss obtaining a copy privately. If you don’t have a UMLS license, they are free of charge and straightforward to obtain [2].

As part of our import process, we do generate a CSV version of the ontology that could be imported into Excel. It contains all properties for each class, not just preferred names and synonyms. You could perhaps use it as a starting point and remove any columns you don’t need.

Kind regards,

Hello. I am a data analyst with PPG Healthcare in Fort Worth, TX, and I use your amazing site for CPT Descriptions to give our team more thorough details when analyzing our data. Currently I update the CPT Mapping one-by-one, and was curious is there was an export into Excel giving the Preferred Name and Synonyms. It would be a tremendous help to my team. Thank you in advance for reviewing the possibility of such a table.
