AN ONTOLOGY SUPPORTING THE DAILY PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS OF RADIOLOGISTS-SENOLOGISTS WITH THE STANDARD BI-RADS

Souad Demigha

Abstract

This paper presents concepts and relationships allowing the development of an ontology that supports the daily practice requirements of radiologists-senologists with the standard BI-RADS (Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System). This ontology aims at describing the radiologic-senologic knowledge shared by the community of technicians, practitioners, gynecologists, radiologists, surgeons and anatomopathologists. It represents a unifying scope for reducing and eliminating ambiguities as well as conceptual and terminological disarrays. It also ensures the understanding of the concerned community. It allows communication and dialogue between members of the scientific community even though they are working in different fields having different requirements and viewpoints. This ontology allowed us to obtain a conceptual model of the domain. Details concerning the development of the ontology and the generalization of the conceptual scheme that leads to the design of the conceptual model are described.
