Subject Meaning of "CONTAINS" TLink.. Is it equivalent to Overlap ?
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2015 08:53:32 GMT
Hi All,

I am a newbee in ctakes so please pardon my ignorance.
I am trying to extract temporal relation between Events-Events and Events-Time. For this I
am using cTakes Temporal module via api's.  Once I get the temporal relation, I would like
to put them in sequence order to understand patients medical history.

Now issue is for most of the relationship(Tlink) between Evenet-Event and Event-Time, I receive
a category  "Contains". In most of the ctakes related papers, I read that TLInk belongs to
"Before, Aftre,Overlap" so what does this "contains" means and how I can utilize this to build
user's sequential timeline

The MRI scan on admission revealed an impending cord compression at the level of T10. 

################ EventEventRelation Annotation Output ############### 
EVENT(DocTime) | Relationship Category | Event(Doctime) 
scan ( BEFORE )  | CONTAINS 		  | revealed ( BEFORE ) 
scan ( BEFORE )  | CONTAINS 		  | compression ( BEFORE ) 

Please suggest.

Thanks &Regards
Stuti Awasthi
