[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from sean.guerrero

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the quick response!
I have a batch of CPT codes and would like to pull the descriptions under the Preferred Name field. Example below:

It doesn’t look like there’s a way to pull a batch of these and the only way to do it would be to copy and paste the CPT codes, one by one. Is this correct? Is their a table of some sort on your website with all CPT codes and preferred names?

Hi Sean,

Due to CPT licensing restrictions, we’re not able to offer downloads of the ontology data in any format.

I’m not sure I followed exactly what you’d like to do. We have a REST API that could help with efficiently retrieving preferred names, e.g.:

The API is documented here:<>

Kind regards,

I'm looking at the Current Procedural Terminology section under the "Classes" tab. I'm looking for a way to pull the Preferred Name of the CPT codes I am searching for. Is there an excel file that I can use to reference?
