KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATIONS OF CONSTRAINTS FOR PATIENT SPECIFIC IOL-DESTINATION

K. P. Scherer

Abstract

A knowledge based system is a computer program, which simulates the problem solving process of a human, who is an expert in this discipline. In the medical area there exist a lot of expert system components for diagnosis of different diseases. In the ophthalmology, after a cataract surgical incision, the human lens is removed and an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted. Because of many preconditions (patient situation, operation technologies and IOL specifics) a knowledge based system is developed to support the decision process of the IOL destination under the related (sometimes contradictory) constraints. A computer aided IOL destination and decision support for a patient related individual optimized lens system can help to enhance the life style of the bresbyope human. In comparison to classical software systems the heuristic knowledge from the surgeons (aggregated over many years by research and clinical praxis) can be regarded and user specific communication with the software system and an explanation part is available for the decision making process. Useful representations of the situation are formalised knowledge representation methods.
