Descriptor Records (Overview)

There are four separate tabs for viewing the descriptor record: Details, Qualifiers, MeSH Tree Structures, and Concepts. Each tab shows the descriptor searched and the label “MeSH Descriptor Data” [MeSH Year]. The details tab is the default view when a descriptor is retrieved.
