A Semantic-Driven Clinical Examination Platform

Charbonnier, C. and Gilles, B. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.

Abstract: Musculoskeletal disorders are widely spread throughout the world-wide population inducing patient’s pain and limitation of movement. Nowadays, the large amount of multimodal data, available from acquisition and modeling, is difficult to exploit effectively. Therefore, to help and guide orthopedists during clinical examination, we designed a medical-based ontology of the musculoskeletal system. Existing ontologies are not developed for specific application purposes and are not appropriate for anatomy functional simulation. We hence created this ontology in order to fulfill this lack of functional knowledge. Our model is dedicated to a clinical examination platform and is navigable by machine-based systems.
