Data Dictionary for LOINC Table Columns - Looking for Definitions

I am curious if there is a data dictionary available somewhere for the different LOINC tables to provide more detail on their columns for a better background of how the data is being managed. Specifically, I am looking for more information about LOINC Answer List and the LOINC Answer List Link tables. Does anyone have information on this, or could anyone point me to location to get those column definitions?

Hello Nicholas,

Have you searched the LOINC Knowledge Base and LOINC Users Guide? There’s quite a bit of info about these topics, including LOINC distribution content.
