Subject Re: process only IMPRESSION section of a note
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2014 17:21:24 GMT
Vlad,
The most natural way to do this would be to create your own version of SegmentAnnotator. Most
cTAKES components iterate over Segment annotations and process text in each segment. So if
you create an annotator that annotates the IMPRESSION section as the only segment that will
be the only text that gets processed by subsequent annotators.

Hi everyone-

can ctakes process only a predefined section of a document (radiology report), for example
the last section in the reports, IMPRESSION? Of course, one can go and parse out this section
only in a new document and do it this way but with millions of such notes the cleaner way
would be to instruct ctakes to only process a specific section.

Thanks ,
vlad
