Subject [jira] [Commented] (CTAKES-289) cTAKES handling of fractions in dosage
Date Fri, 21 Mar 2014 16:47:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CTAKES-289?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13943225#comment-13943225

James Joseph Masanz commented on CTAKES-289:

A later email from Jain in the thread also reports
"I also wanted to mention that I have noticed the same behavior when ranges are specified
in the context of dosage and frequency.  For example, when I try:
'Take Lipitor 1-2 tabs 3-4 times a day for 7 days', dosage is annotated as '2' and frequency
value is annotated as '4'.
Looks like the same pattern is surfacing here (use the latter half) as well."

> Hi,
> I am running the DrugAggregatePlainTextUMLSProcessor and noticing that cTAKES is not
handling fractions for medication dosage correctly.  For example, "Benadryl 1/2 tsp 3 times
> produces a MedicationMention with a dosage of 2.  Having tried different fractions (1/2,
1/3, 2/4, etc.), apparently the dosage is always set to the digit on the right of the '/'.
 I am wondering if this is a documented issue with cTAKES (I am using cTAKES version 3.1).
 Thanks in advance.
