Abstract : This paper presents a medical case study, which requires reasoning with an OWL ontology extended by rules. The application aims at assisting the labeling of some brain cortex structures identified in MRI images. A simplified example is provided to illustrate the need for supplementing OWL with rules, for reasoning over such hybrid knowledge, and showing potential issues with doing that. Then, we describe some of the available techniques and implementations for reasoning over hybrid systems and discuss potential tools that might be considered for this application.
