Event Abstract

Experimental database system for the vascular brain diseases research

  • 1 University of West Bohemia, Czechia

The main goal of the project is to create robust and universal database system. The system will be sophisticated in processing of heterogeneous multimedia medical data objects. A knowledge-based system using the database will be proposed. The system will also cover advanced searching according to a set of neurological diagnoses selection. There will be also implemented similarity searching system with possibility of latter involving new similarity measure methods. Medicine doctors can propose their own similarity measure methods for image data and other types of data. Implementation of proposed methods can be uploaded to the server where it will be processed over all targeted data. Finally the searching system can be easily adapted to reflect current doctor's needs.
The database system will be used in medical research for displaying techniques of acute brain ischemia using CT or MR modality with mathematical processing of source data. Created database of imaging examinations will allow studying of crucial values and dependencies of particular parameters in high amount of examinations with clinical data correlations.
Suggested project is not intended to be another imaging neurodatabase. The system will serve as a practical educational and diagnostic tool based on knowledge-comparison information access. It will also serve as an open on-line information base with fast searching engine suitable for scientific and research works concerning in neuroscience. Solution will cover actual design and implementation methods of complex multimedia databases, its representation in web environment, remote managing and content updating. There will be used actual methods for context-oriented searching and intelligent questioning of knowledge-based system. Actual techniques will be also used for representation of functional relations between neurological diagnoses and particular types of medical examinations. All actual medical requests and research findings will be fully respected.
