Guidelines by Topic

Browse topics to find guidelines represented in NGC that are linked to a particular term derived from the U.S. National Library of Medicine's (NLM) Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) External Web Site Policy, a controlled vocabulary for disease/condition, treatment/intervention, and health services administration. MeSH is one of the controlled vocabularies included within the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) (what's this?)

MeSH terms are arranged hierarchically ranging from broad headings to more narrow concepts. For example, the general concept "Nervous System Diseases" can be followed through the MeSH hierarchy down to the concept "Myasthenia Gravis, Neonatal;" the broad concept "Diagnostic Techniques, Digestive System" can be followed through "Endoscopy, Gastrointestinal" to the narrow concept "Sigmoidoscopy."
