Abstract

We introduce a system which includes a 3D atlas of a human central nervous system, a knowledge database which has correspondences between patient’s symptoms and damaged nerves, and a display tool which has various graphical display methods to show 3D structure of damaged nerves and its adjoining organs. 3D atlas is composed of two MRI images and a labeled image whose labels stand for motor nerves and brain matters. The knowledge database includes 66 if-then rules. If a user uses this system, he will be able to acquire appropriate sectional images and the corresponding atlas data needful for screening images, diagnosing patients and planning a therapy.
