Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening condition that is often undiagnosed or diagnosed late. ARDS is especially prominent in those infected with COVID-19. We explore the automatic identification of ARDS indicators and confounding factors in free-text chest radiograph reports. We present a new annotated corpus of chest radiograph reports and introduce the Hierarchical Attention Network with Sentence Objectives (HANSO) text classification framework. HANSO utilizes fine… Expand

Towards Reliable ARDS Clinical Decision Support: ARDS Patient Analytics with Free-text and Structured EMR Data
This is the first study to successfully combine free-text and structured data, without any manual patient risk factor curation, to build real-time ARDS prediction models and ARDS phenotype clusters. Expand
A Computable Phenotype for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Using Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning
A computable phenotype for ARDS with NLP may identify more cases than the traditional model, and the best NLP model had an accuracy of 83.0% (95% CI: 75.9-90.2) with a PPV of 71.4%. Expand
Identification of Patients with Acute Lung Injury from Free-Text Chest X-Ray Reports
A text processing method that uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) and supervised text classification methods to identify patients who are positive for Acute Lung Injury (ALI) based on the information available in free-text chest x-ray reports is described. Expand
External Validation of an Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Prediction Model Using Radiology Reports
A model that used machine learning and natural language processing of text from radiology reports to identify acute respiratory distress syndrome had good discrimination in external validation and may be used by other health systems for case-identification. Expand
Extracting COVID-19 Diagnoses and Symptoms From Clinical Text: A New Annotated Corpus and Neural Event Extraction Framework
A span-based event extraction model is introduced that jointly extracts all annotated phenomena, achieving high performance in identifying COVID-19 and symptom events with associated assertion values and outperforms an extractor built on MetaMapLite for the identification of symptoms with assertion values.

Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing in Radiology-Fundamentals and a Systematic Review.
Research and use of deep learning NLP in radiology is increasing and acquaintance with this technology can help prepare radiologists for the coming changes in their field, according to a systematic review. Expand
Pneumonia identification using statistical feature selection
Using a statistical feature selection approach that allows the feature extractor to consider only the most informative features from the feature space significantly improves the performance over a baseline that uses all the features of the same feature space. Expand
Understanding Spatial Language in Radiology: Representation Framework, Annotation, and Spatial Relation Extraction from Chest X-ray Reports using Deep Learning
A deep learning-based natural language processing (NLP) method involving word and character-level encodings to first extract the Spatial Indicators followed by identifying the corresponding spatial roles is proposed. Expand
Publicly Available Clinical BERT Embeddings
This work explores and releases BERT models for clinical text: one for generic clinical text and another for discharge summaries specifically, and demonstrates that using a domain-specific model yields performance improvements on three common clinical NLP tasks as compared to nonspecific embeddings.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome: the Berlin Definition.
The updated and revised Berlin Definition for ARDS addresses a number of the limitations of the AECC definition and may serve as a model to create more accurate, evidence-based, critical illness syndrome definitions and to better inform clinical care, research, and health services planning. Expand
