Rebecka Weegar and I had a kickoff for our Minecan project at Kreftregisteret, Oslo, 8-9 April 2015.
200 000 cancer pathology reports for cancer are sent yearly from all hospitals in Norway to Kreftregistret to be manually read and entered into a database. 25 human coders are performing this work.
Our plan is to build a prototype that automatically reads the pathology reports that are written in Norwegian and transfers some of the important information into the database. We are planning to use already coded pathology reports as training material.
