Ontology-driven generation of radiation protection procedures (2017)
Journal Article
Rahmouni Boussi, H. (2017). Ontology-driven generation of radiation protection procedures

In this article, we present the principle and suitable methodology for the design of a medical ontology that highlights the radiological and dosimetric knowledge, applied in diagnostic radiology and radiation-therapy. Our ontology, which we named «O... Read More about Ontology-driven generation of radiation protection procedures.
