SaRAD: A Simple and Robust Abbreviation Dictionary
The Simple and Robust Abbreviation Dictionary (SaRAD) provides an easy to implement, high performance tool for the construction of a biomedical symbol dictionary. We describe and evaluate the algorithms of the system and apply it to the MEDLINE document set. The resulting dictionary represents a useful tool to researchers and provides programmers with a mechanism to disambiguate abbreviation symbols automatically.
