Abstract: A sense inventory is a collection of abbreviations and acronyms (short forms) with their possible senses (long forms), along with other corresponding information about these terms. For our comprehensive sense inventory for clinical abbreviations and acronyms, a total of 440 most frequently used abbreviations and acronyms were selected from 352,267 dictated clinical notes. 949 senses of each abbreviation and acronym were manually annotated from 500 random instances within clinical notes and lexically aligned with 17,359 long forms of the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS), 5,233 long forms of Another Database of Abbreviations in Medline (ADAM), and 4,879 long forms in Stedman’s Medical Abbreviations, Acronyms & Symbols (4th edition).
Description: This clinical sense inventory is provided in two versions (Version 1 and version 2) along with the Anonymized Data Set. Descriptions of the versions and data anonymization process are included as README files.
