Subject Re: De-identified lab tests dataset
Date Mon, 29 Sep 2014 22:57:31 GMT
Sorry, I wasn't clear. I am working on a related project and trying to figure out if the code
can be repurposed for a lab mention annotator for cTAKES. From what I have seen, test names
from different institutions are not standardized which makes it hard to standardize the resulting
annotation. Getting access to a larger lab tests dataset (structured) will help me fine tune
the model. 
Hope this helps.

Hope this makes sense!

> Ajay, I'm confused by your query.  cTakes is good at interpreting text, but most lab
test results are reported in tabular form that is most appropriately searched by SQL queries.
 Sometimes lab results are also reported in narrative notes, but parsing those is often more
a matter of deciphering the text structure of tables than of parsing real English text.  What
am I misunderstanding?
