Biomedical ontologies: toward scientific debate.
TLDR
Analysis of a large number of problems with biomedical ontologies suggests that the field is very much open to alternative interpretations of current work, and in need of scientific debate and discussion that can lead to new ideas and research directions. Expand
Biomedical informatics publications: a global perspective: part I: conferences.
TLDR
The results suggest that for BMI to be recognized as a broad discipline, both in the geographical and scientific sense, it will need to extend the scope of collaborations and their interdisciplinary impacts worldwide. Expand
Using web services for linking genomic data to medical information systems.
TLDR
Web services provide new biomedical informatics (BMI) approaches related to genomic medicine through the use of Web services technologies to improve access to and integrate different information sources. Expand
Theory, abstraction and design in medical informatics.
TLDR
It is suggested that Medical Informatics has an independent scientific character, different from other applied informatics areas, to improve the quality of computer applications in medicine. Expand
Enhancement of MR images using non-linear techniques
TLDR
The multi-scale operator presented in the paper improves the image for this purpose by increasing the strength of the edges of the heart edges. Expand
Integration of relational and textual biomedical sources. A pilot experiment using a semi-automated method for logical schema acquisition.
TLDR
The results of the experiment suggest that text-based sources including a logical schema can be regarded as equivalent to structured databases, and previous research and existing tools designed for the integration of structured databases can be reused - possibly subject to minor modifications. Expand
Biomedical informatics publications: a global perspective. Part II: Journals.
TLDR
An analysis of publications in the field of biomedical informatics provides an indication about the geographic distribution of BMI research contributions and possible lessons for the future, both for research and professional practice. Expand
A JAVA-based multimedia tool for clinical practice guidelines.
TLDR
A specific language for the representation of Clinical Practice Guidelines and Windows C++ and platform independent JAVA applications for multimedia presentation and edition of electronically stored CPGs is developed and chosen as a reference element in medical care. Expand
ARMEDA: accessing remote medical databases over the World Wide Web.
We have created a computer system to access medical information located at remote databases over the World Wide Web, for epidemiological ad health services research. We made a preliminary prototypeExpand
An Algebraic Approach to Detect Logical Inconsistencies in Medical Appropriateness Criteria
TLDR
A computerized approach to detect inconsistencies in medical knowledge bases using three-valued Lukasiewicz's logic augmented with modal operators to manage uncertainty and can be applied to other knowledge bases represented by means of IF-THEN rules. Expand
