14 September 1993 Object-oriented image data model for a knowledge-based image processing system
Author Affiliations +
For the last two years, we have been developing a medical image processing system driven by a knowledge-based system, which has been partially presents at the last SPIE Medical Imaging conference. In short, it consists of three modules: (1) an expert system (ES) which handles generic knowledge about image processing, image sources and medicine, and specific knowledge for every developed application. Consequently, it knows why, under which circumstances and in which environment an image processing tool must be achieved. (2) a relational data base (rDB) on which the ES may perform requests to select image data for an application. (3) an image processing (IP) toolbox which is able to run procedures according to the ES specifications on data pointed to by the rDB. In other words the IP toolbox knows how to run a procedure but not why.
