Abstract

Ontologies are widely used in the biomedical community, which has built standard reference ontologies for various aspects of medicine. These projects have produced broad descriptions of the medical domain, resulting in large, complex ontologies which can be difficult to reuse as part of a focused application. We describe four ontologies which we developed to support intelligent reasoning about a particular medical sub-domain.We also describe how concepts in these ontologies can be aligned with standard reference ontologies to promote interoperability..
