The ExaMode Ontology (colon cancer version)
The goal of this document is to define an OWL 2 ontology for the ExaMode project whose overall goal is to build predictive algorithms to help pathologists in the diagnosis of cancer cases. The starting point of ExaMode are medical diagnostic reports associated with WSIs of examined tissues.
The present ontology models the diagnostic reports associated with a (series of) WSI and enable a structured encoding of the main concepts of a diagnosis. These concepts and their relations can be used to automatically annotate WSI as well as to do some reasoning over diagnostic reports about colon cancer.
