  • The concept of desirable weight for the purposes of impairment assessment.
  • The methodology used to evaluate all parts of the digestive system.
  • The methodology used to evaluate hernias of the abdominal wall.
  • Apportionment of Impairment: The approach required to disentangle what impairment may or may not be related to a compensable event.
