Development of a Dental Diagnostic Terminology - Ontology
Our project has the goal of mapping all the dental concepts used in general dental practice
Currently, use of standardized dental diagnostic information in dentistry is limited. Among other factors, the lack of a common standard prevents the sharing of clinical information among dental practitioners. This project has the goal of capturing the concepts commonly used in dental practice. We are in the process of structuring this information in order to create a standarized terminology - ontology that includes diagnostic information.
