Medical Imaging

Dr. Tatjana Zrimec, UNSW Centre for Health Informatics, developed a knowledge-based system for interpreting medical images from sources such as x-ray angiograms and magnetic resonance angiograms. To represent anatomical and procedural knowledge, she used a frame-based language that is based on UNSW Prolog.
