Application of Text Information Extraction System for Real Time Cancer Case Identification in an Integrated Healthcare Organization

J Pathol Inform
PMCID: 5760847
PMID: 29416911
DOI: 10.4103/jpi.jpi_55_17

[…] and scope with which this data can be accessed quickly.[] A series of NLP methods and applications have been developed to retrieve this type of information from pathology reports.[] For example, the text information extraction system (TIES) released by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine[] was initiatively focused on extracting cancer information from SPR and later extended to radiolo […]


Morphological Background Detection and Illumination Normalization of Text Image with Poor Lighting

PLoS One
PMCID: 4245115
PMID: 25426639
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0110991

[…] search, object recognition, human computer interaction and so on , , . In most cases, there is no guarantee to keep the environment in ideal condition during image capturing. In , an integrated image text information extraction system called TIE was described, but the system will be affected by noise pollution and uneven illumination , which is fatal.Therefore, de-noising and illumination normaliz […]


Translational research platforms integrating clinical and omics data: a review of publicly available solutions

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4364065
PMID: 24608524
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbu006

[…] tion about successful treatments across the caBIG data grid. The system interoperates with several caBIG applications, including the Tumor Registry, a clinical system used to collect data; the cancer Text Information Extraction System, a natural language processing (NLP) tool designed to extract clinical knowledge from surgical pathology free-text report using controlled terminologies; the caTissu […]


The cancer translational research informatics platform

PMCID: 2626590
PMID: 19108734
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6947-8-60

[…] survival). Of importance, caTRIP relies on the vast array of open source caBIG applications, including (1) the Tumor Registry, a clinical system that is used to collect endpoint data; (2) the cancer Text Information Extraction System (caTIES, ), a locator of tissue resources that works via the extraction of clinical information from free text surgical pathology reports while using controlled term […]


Availability and quality of paraffin blocks identified in pathology archives: A multi institutional study by the Shared Pathology Informatics Network (SPIN)

BMC Cancer
PMCID: 1810540
PMID: 17386082
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2407-7-37

[…] onsortium and approval of other members[]. Currently, many of the SPIN members are intimately involved with enhancing many of the prototype SPIN tools created by this group by working with the Cancer Text Information Extraction System (CaTIES) project of the NCIs Cancer Bioinformatics Grid (caBIG) initiative. This relationship allows a common framework by which the SPIN institutions can integrate […]


The CAP cancer protocols – a case study of caCORE based data standards implementation to integrate with the Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 1524939
PMID: 16787533
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6947-6-25

[…] We have already begun to reap the benefits of a single, reusable representation of the CAP cancer checklists in our environment. The potential to connect Cancer Text Information Extraction System (caTIES), Clinical Annotation Engine (CAE) and our CoPathPlus clinical archives through this representation offers opportunities for supporting tissue-based research […]
