Hi Alaa,

The -shortest- answer is that you'll need to run the dictionary creation tool.  There are
instructions in older devlist threads.  By default the dictionary creation tool does add icd9
and icd10 tables to the dictionary.  The problem is that in Umls 2011AB those codes weren't
very well populated.  The 2015AB icd# set is much more rich so those tables should be pretty
good.  Then in ctakes you would look up annotations by icd9 or icd10 codes instead of by cui:
OntologyConceptUtil.getAnnotationsByCode( jcas, lookupWindow, icd#Code );
OntologyConceptUtil.getAnnotationsByCode( jcas, icd#Code );

Hi Alaa,
You need to create a resource off the terminology/ontology you want to use (in this case ICD9
or ICD10). Then run that resource with cTAKES for the fast dictionary lookup. There is cTAKES
code and some documentation on how to create that resource. By default, cTAKES runs with a
resource created from the English version of SNOMED CT and RxNORM.
Hope this helps.
