OK, thanks James. Does that mean there is an implicit map lookup somewhere in ctakes from snomed/umls
to icd9?

The ICD9 codes themselves, such as 726.72, are not used, but the text of ICD9 code descriptions,

Subject: RE: ICD9 code resolving..

I'm not aware of ICD9 codes being used within cTAKES. Is there a specific piece of code you're
referencing when you say:
"I found that ICD9 code is used internally by the cTakes for finding the entities."

Subject: ICD9 code resolving..

I have some clarifications regarding ICD9 code. I found that cTakes uses different mapping
technique to resolve the entities from the diagnosis. I want to know how they are doing this
for ICD9. When I run the code, in the output it is showing the various tagged entities with
SNOMED CT code. But my question, why I am not able to access the ICD9 code. I found that ICD9
code is used internally by the cTakes for finding the entities. How can I find the IC9 code
for the entities ? Can you please tell me if there is any module which is using ICD9 code
in the cTakes. I need to pipeline the ICD9 code also separately.
