We present experiments performed with intex to process medical terms. One of our aims is to identify terms in patient discharge summaries that denote diagnoses and procedures, in order to help in the coding of these diagnoses and procedures in the context of the French national coding programme (pmsi). Some of the experiments presented here have been performed on corpora of the menelas project (P. Zweigenbaum & Consortium menelas 1995) or in the framework of the dome project (B. Séroussi et al. 1996). We have built for this purpose specialised lexica which contain specific semantic features. The search for relevant terms is then performed through regular expressions that make use of these features. For these experiments, intex was mainly used in the form of pipes of Unix filters called through a “ Makefile ”, the principles of which we also briefly present.
