KneeTex: An ontology-driven system for information extraction from MRI reports
An example of a filled template. Original text source: "There is a small undisplaced vertical radial tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus."
KneeTex is an open-source, stand-alone application for information extraction from narrative reports that describe an MRI scan of the knee.
The extracted information is mapped onto TRAK, an ontology that formally models knowledge relevant for the rehabilitation of knee conditions.
As a result, formally structured and coded information allows for complex searches to be conducted efficiently over the original MRI reports, thereby effectively supporting epidemiologic studies of knee conditions.
SQLite database is used by KneeTex to manage intermediary results.
SQLite Manager can be used to view the SQLite database.
