CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Accession:CMO:0002154 term browser browse the term
Definition:A calculated measurement of the difference in the total of the right and left rear ankle joint diameters added together between two points in time or two conditions expressed as the result of the subtraction of the sums in and of itself without comparison by ratio with another quantity.
Comment:The term "absolute change" refers to the subtraction of one value from another, as opposed to a dissimilarity of two values expressed as a ratio or as a percentage. In this context it is not intended to necessarily imply the difference expressed as an absolute value |n|, that is, the numeric value of the difference without regard to its sign.
Synonyms:related_synonym: absolute change in the total left plus right rear ankle diameter
