Abstract

Capsule endoscopy is specialized for the observation of small intestine that is difficult to access by general endoscopy. The diagnostic procedure through capsule endoscopy consists of three stages: examination of indicant, endoscopy, and diagnosis. At this time, key information needed for diagnosis includes indicant, lesions, and suspected disease information. In this paper, these information are defined as semantic features and the extracting process is defined as semantic-based analysis. It is performed in whole capsule endoscopy. First, several symptoms of patient are checked before capsule endoscopy to get some information on suspected disease. Next, capsule endoscopy is performed by checking the suspected diseases. Finally, diagnosis is concluded by using supporting information. At this time, some association are used to conclude diagnosis. For example, there are the disease association between the symptom and the disease to identify the expected disease, and the anatomical association between the location of the lesion and supporting information. However, existing knowledge models such as MST and CEST only lists the simple term related to endoscopy and cannot consider such semantic associations. Therefore, in this paper, we propose association-based knowledge model for supporting diagnosis of capsule endoscopy. The proposed model is divided into two; a disease model and anatomical model of small intestine, interesting area(organs) of capsule endoscopy. It can effectively support diagnosis by providing key information for capsule endoscopy.
