Abstract

 

Inconsistent anatomical concept representation can be identified in anatomy textbooks and hard copy term lists, as well as in UMLS source vocabularies and other controlled medical terminologies. In this report we select some examples of inconsistent representations of anatomical concepts, and illustrate how these inconsistencies can be explained and reconciled by the Digital Anatomist Foundational Model1. We use this process for gaining a measure of the validity of the logic-based Model.
