    ABSTRACT: The development of data-intensive systems in medical domains has received increasing attention in recent years. In this work we present in depth some parts of ACUDES (Architecture for Intensive Care Units Decision Support) in which traditional techniques for managing and representing time have been integrated with a temporal diagnosis task in a decision support platform. ACUDES has been designed to manage the information regarding patient evolution and to describe the patients evolution in terms of the temporal sequence diseases suffered. These functionalities are supported by an ontology which simplifies the knowledge acquisition and sharing, while guaranteeing the semantic consistency of patients’ evolution data. This work will be focused on the Temporal Data Management and the Knowledge Acquisition Tool. KeywordsDecision Support-Temporal Information Management-Medical Knowledge Acquisition and Representation

    ABSTRACT: This study was conducted on human cervical mucus using light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The objective was the morphological characterization of the different mucus types, with samples taken from the lumen of the cervix and from the different secretory zones of the cervical mucosa. A total of 230 samples from 195 women were spread out on slides and air dried. The phenomenon of 'ferning' was observed and assessed in these samples using both LM and SEM. Further samples from the lumen of the cervix and the different secretory crypts were spread out on cover slips and fixed with glutaraldehyde (2.5%) to be studied by SEM. The results show the presence of four different morphological mucus types, namely L, S, P and G, in both types of sample using dried and fixed techniques. Mucus from the lumen of the cervix appears to be a morphologically heterogeneous entity. It contains different types of secretions, the proportions of which vary throughout the menstrual cycle. The different mucosal types show different types of crystallization, different patterns of ultrastructure (probably related to the arrangement of the glycoprotein network) and are produced in different secretory zones of the crypts in the cervix.

    ABSTRACT: In medical domains, a detailed model of diseases is necessary in order to provide useful explanations about the patient evolution. There are domains, for example Intensive Care Units (ICU), in which the temporal dimension plays an essential role in describing patient evolution over time. The inclusion of the temporal dimension in describing the diseases causal relations increases the problems associated to the so-called knowledge acquisition (KA) bottleneck. A KA tool is presented in this work to overcome these difficulties. This tool is built over the causal and temporal model ontology and the domain ontology, providing graphical wizards to guide the user through the KA process and to specify ontology mappings. Finally, the resulting knowledge base (KB) is physically implemented in Extensible Markup Language (XML) allowing an automatic diffusion of the KB throughout Internet.

    ABSTRACT: Resumen. El desarrollo de software dirigido por modelos es un área que está en su infancia, pero ya han aparecido un buen número de herramientas con la etiqueta MDA. En esta ponencia presentamos los resultados de un trabajo que ha consistido en realizar una comparación de las dos herramientas MDA más extendidas: OptimalJ y ArcStyler. Primero evaluamos cada una de ellas me-diante un análisis de propiedades extraídas de la especificación de MDA, des-arrollando la aplicación Pet Store con cada herramienta. Posteriormente reali-zamos el estudio comparativo a partir de las mismas propiedades. La compara-ción ha puesto de manifiesto importantes decisiones de diseño para una herra-mienta MDA, como son la forma de anotar el PIM, que el PSM sea implícito o explícito, su naturaleza cerrada o abierta para soportar cualquier tecnología y los mecanismos para la edición y ajuste de las transformaciones.
