Hi Niall,
Could you please also send the xml/xmi export from the CVD?
Also, which version of cTAKES are you using?

I have question concerning concept identification.  I have modifying the example text given
in the installation instructions to demonstrate the use of CAS Visual Debugger.

My text is:

Dr. Nutritious

Medical Nutrition Therapy for Hyperlipidemia and Aphasia

Referral from: Julie Tester, RD, LD, CNSD
Phone contact: (555) 555-1212
Height: 144 cm   Current Weight: 45 kg   Date of current weight: 02-29-2001   Admit Weight:
 53 kg   BMI: 18 kg/m2
Diet: General
Daily Calorie needs (kcals): 1500 calories, assessed as HB + 20% for activity and blood pressure.
Daily Protein needs: 40 grams,  assessed as 1.0 g/kg.
Pt has been on a 3-day calorie count and has had an average intake of 1100 calories.  She
was instructed to drink 2-3 cans of liquid supplement to help promote weight gain.
 She agrees with the plan and has my number for further assessment. May want a Metabolic Rate
as well. She takes Codeine a day for knee and stomach pain.

Original entities and concepts are identified such as “Hyperlidemia” , “knee”,“pain”.
However concepts associated with addition to the text are not identified such as “Aphasia”,
“blood pressure”, “stomach”.  Also “metabolic rate” is not identified. Does anyone
know why this is?
