Scenario recognition for temporal reasoning in medical domains.


The recognition of high level clinical scenes is fundamental in patient monitoring. In this paper, we propose a technique for recognizing a session, i.e. the clinical process evolution, by comparison against a predetermined set of scenarios, i.e. the possible behaviors for this process. We use temporal constraint networks to represent both scenario and session. Specific operations on networks are then applied to perform the recognition task. An index of temporal proximity is introduced to quantify the degree of matching between two temporal networks in order to select the best scenario fitting a session. We explore the application of our technique, implemented in the Déjà Vu system, to the recognition of typical medical scenarios with both precise and imprecise temporal information.
