cc

, c.c. Although the SI unit of volume is the cubic meter and, by extension, the cubic centimeter (1 cm3 = 0.000 001 m3), the liter and its submultiples are preferred to the cubic meter and its submultiples for the expression of volumes and substance or mass concentrations in clinical chemistry. for practical purposes, 1 cm3 = 1 mL. The JCAHO directs that this abbreviation not be used because, when handwritten, it can easily be mistaken for U, units, or the numeral 4.
