Argument Identification for Arterial Branching Predications Asserted in Cardiac Catheterization Reports
The language describing coronary vasculature provides a suitable paradigm for research in semantic interpretation of anatomical text. As a pilot project we investigate the possibility of highly accurate retrieval of arterial branching relationships asserted in cardiac catheterization reports. Our methodology relies on the cooperation of underspecified linguistic analysis and structured domain knowledge. The satisfactory results of formal evaluation on both a training and testing set support the promise of this approach.
