Vera Pyle's "silver book" has been the favorite "must-have" reference among medical transcriptionists for 25 years.  Now you can have it on your computer, and searching for the terms you need has never been faster.


  • PDF file with convenient search capability that instantly takes you to all uses of your word.
  • Numerous bookmarks and major category headings make browsing easier.
  • Glossary format: definitions, explanations, and examples of usage in dictation.
  • New, difficult, and "odd-ball" terms that are hard to find or verify.
  • More phonetic entries than ever.
  • Researched and compiled by transcriptionists for transcriptionists.

Most medical transcriptionists and students already have a comprehensive medical dictionary such as Dorland's or Stedman's (the only two HPI recommends for MTs).  These dictionaries are not updated frequently enough to contain the most current medical terms, and other terms are probably in the big dictionaries but you can't find them!

That's where Vera Pyle's Current Medical Terminology comes in.  It's NOT a comprehensive medical dictionary.  It has only NEW, DIFFICULT, and HARD-TO-FIND terms, along with definitions and explanations for usage in dictation.
