I don't know whether there is a list of meanings for abbreviations, maybe one of the moderators will chime in soon.
If their is an abreviation you need to know, please let us know and we can help you. I have to admit that I tend to abbreviate medical terms quite often and I am sorry for doing this. I will try and remember to type in the whole word/s next time.

Hi, Smurfette. This link has recently been added to our Researching the Internet page:
All-Acronyms.com. Includes medical acronyms to help make sense of medical records and prescriptions.
Another page which has a lot of abbreviations explained is our What are Antibodies? page which explains a lot about the various tests and what the results might mean. As Celia says, if there is something specific, please ask.
