CuiTools is a freely available package of Perl programs for unsupervised and supervised word sense disambiguation (WSD) experiments. The name CuiTools comes from the Concept Unique Identifiers (CUIs) found in the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS). This package allows the users to perform supervised or unsupervised word sense disambiguation using information extracted from the UMLS such as CUIs, semantic types and semantic relations as well as general english features such as unigrams, bigrams and part-of-speech information.

This package has also been used to perform classification for other medical tasks outside of WSD such as assigning ICD9-CM codes to medical records, determining the co-morbidities of a patient based on their medical record and identifying relations in biomedical text.
