Terminology for the description of the diagnostic studies in the field of EBM

Abstract : Diagnostic systematic reviews is a relatively new area within the Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM). Their indexing in Pubmed is not precise, which complicates their detection when a systematic review is to be realized. In order to provide an assistance in the selection of relevant studies, we propose to develop a terminology describing this area and the organization of its terms. The terminology is built with a bottom-up approach. It contains 255 terms organized into five hierarchical levels. Only a small proportion of these terms (13%) are already registered in MeSH. This terminology will be exploited in a dedicated web service as a main tool for the detection of relevant diagnostic studies.
