MapFace - A Graphical Editor to Support the Semantic Annotation of Medical Text

By Theresia Gschwandtner, Katharina Kaiser, and Silvia Miksch

Abstract

The mapping of medical texts to concepts of medical terminology systems is a prerequisite for many tasks of automatically processing these documents. Due to the complex nature of this task, the results of mapping systems still contain erroneous bits of information.

Our editor visualizes the annotation of the text and provides means to easily navigate and modify it. Thus we are able to shorten a cumbersome and time-consuming task and subsequently provide reliable and well-defined information for further processing steps. Even more, the visualization features support a better understanding of the medical texts.
