Natural Language Processing for Clinical Research

Motivation:

The aim of the NLP4CR project is to test whether available NLP techniques are suitable to process medical free texts (medical letters, findings) and to support the recruitment of patients into clinical studies.

Description:

The NLP4CR project was initiated as part of Colleen Goldberg's master thesis. Medical information is not always available in a structured form, but as free text documentation. NLP techniques make it possible to analyse, annotate and extract these free texts. In this way, medical data can be made accessible for machine processing and for clinical research.
