Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 2,7, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Wirtschaftsinformatik), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Heutzutage ist in digitalen Medien und im Internet eine gewaltige Menge an Informationen abrufbar. Aufgrund dessen ist es wichtig, die Informationen so zu strukturieren und aufzubereiten, dass die Suche nach relevanten Informationen über eine bestimmte Thematik und ihre richtige Interpretation einfach und schnell durchgeführt werden kann. Um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, sind Wissensrepräsentationen nötig. Dafür hat sich in der Informatik in den letzten Jahren der Begriff Ontologie eingebürgert. Der Begriff der Ontologie hat eine lange Tradition in der Philosophie und den Sprachwissenschaften. Erst in den 90er Jahren wurde der Begriff in die Informatik von Gruber eingeführt. Er definierte eine Ontologie als „explicit specification of a conceptualization“. Eine aktuelle Definition, die darauf aufgebaut ist, ist die von Studer: “Eine Ontologie ist eine explizite, formale Spezifikation der Konzeptualisierung eines abgegrenzten Diskursbereichs zu einem definierten Zweck, auf die sich eine Gruppe von Akteuren geeinigt hat.“ Anders als bei einem konzeptionellen Datenbankschema enthalten Ontologien Informationen über die Bedeutung der gespeicherten Daten sowie Regeln über deren Zusammenhang. Eine Ontologie ist ein formales Wissensmodell, das im Wissensmanagement, in Experten- und Multiagentensystemen, bei der Informationsintegration und vor allem im Semantic Web eingesetzt wird. Gerade in diesen Bereichen haben die Ontologien einen großen Aufschwung erlangt, wie in Abb. 1.1 ersichtlich ist. Besonders seit dem Aufkommen des Semantic Webs werden sie immer mehr zur Grundlange für Austausch und Zusammenführen von Informationen (siehe Abb. 1.1). Ontologien sind zu dem Rückgrat der Wissensrepräsentation im Semantic Web geworden. Aufgrund der hohen Anzahl an verfügbaren Ontologien und aufgrund der Bedeutung von Ontologie, vor allem für den Bereich des Semantic Webs, ist die Evaluation der unterschiedlichen Ontologien zu einem Schlüsselfaktor der Entwicklung von Anwendungen des Semantic Webs geworden. Für die Entwicklung von Anwendungen spielt die Auswahl der richtigen und guten Ontologie eine große Rolle. Um dieses beurteilen zu können, ist eine Evaluation der einzelnen Ontologien unumgänglich.

Informatics in Medical Imaging provides a comprehensive survey of the field of medical imaging informatics. In addition to radiology, it also addresses other specialties such as pathology, cardiology, dermatology, and surgery, which have adopted the use of digital images. The book discusses basic imaging informatics protocols, picture archiving and communication systems, and the electronic medical record. It details key instrumentation and data mining technologies used in medical imaging informatics as well as practical operational issues, such as procurement, maintenance, teleradiology, and ethics. Highlights Introduces the basic ideas of imaging informatics, the terms used, and how data are represented and transmitted Emphasizes the fundamental communication paradigms: HL7, DICOM, and IHE Describes information systems that are typically used within imaging departments: orders and result systems, acquisition systems, reporting systems, archives, and information-display systems Outlines the principal components of modern computing, networks, and storage systems Covers the technology and principles of display and acquisition detectors, and rounds out with a discussion of other key computer technologies Discusses procurement and maintenance issues; ethics and its relationship to government initiatives like HIPAA; and constructs beyond radiology The technologies of medical imaging and radiation therapy are so complex and computer-driven that it is difficult for physicians and technologists responsible for their clinical use to know exactly what is happening at the point of care. Medical physicists are best equipped to understand the technologies and their applications, and these individuals are assuming greater responsibilities in the clinical arena to ensure that intended care is delivered in a safe and effective manner. Built on a foundation of classic and cutting-edge research, Informatics in Medical Imaging supports and updates medical physicists functioning at the intersection of radiology and radiation.

The book reports on the current state on HCI in biomedicine and health care, focusing on the role of human factors, patient safety well as methodological underpinnings of HCI theories and its application for biomedical informatics. Theories, models and frameworks for human-computer interaction (HCI) have been recognized as key contributors for the design, development and use of computer-based systems. In the clinical domain, key themes that litter the research landscape of health information technology (HIT) are usability, decision support and clinical workflow – all of which are affected directly or indirectly by the nature of HCI. While the implications of HCI principles for the design of HIT are acknowledged, the adoption of the tools and techniques among clinicians, informatics researchers and developers of HIT are limited. There is a general consensus that HIT has not realized its potential as a tool to facilitate clinical decision-making, the coordination of care and improves patient safety. Embracing sound principles of iterative design can yield significant dividends. It can also enhance practitioner’s abilities to meet “meaningful use” requirements. The purpose of the book is two-fold: to address key gaps on the applicability of theories, models and evaluation frameworks of HCI and human factors for research in biomedical informatics. It highlights the state of the art, drawing from the current research in HCI. Second, it also serves as a graduate level textbook highlighting key topics in HCI relevant for biomedical informatics, computer science and social science students working in the healthcare domain. For instructional purposes, the book provides additional information and a set of questions for interactive class discussion for each section. The purpose of these questions is to encourage students to apply the learned concepts to real world healthcare problems.​
