Subject cTAKES false positives, case-insensitivity
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:27:31 GMT

I have encountered false positives annotated with cTAKES that seem to come from case-insensitivity
of the annotation lookup, such as:

Pt uses hearing aids. -> "aids" is found as DiseaseDisorderMention cui=C0001175, Acquired
Immunodeficiency Syndrome

Pt values are all stable. -> "all" is found as DiseaseDisorderMention cui=C1961102, Precursor
Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia Lymphoma"

Are there ways in cTAKES to approach or to resolve such issues?

How do you deal with such false positives, so that they are not matched?
