Hello, cTAKES developing team,

We are using and comparing various NLP tools (including cTAKES) for processing 
over 5 million clinical notes within Johns Hopkins Medical Institutes. As a 
part of our comparisons, we are exploring the architecture of the NER and 
(UMLS) concept linking components of the tools.

I was able to find the description on the cTAKES default/original dictionary 
look up in the Savova et. al. 2010 paper but I was not able to find a paper or 
tech report describing the fast UMLS dictionary lookup (Fast UMLS Processor) 
yet.

Any description of the fast dictionary lookup algorithm is highly appreciated.

Thank you,
Masoud Rouhizadeh
