 – Using SOHARD’s Semantic PACS SeDI, medical physics researchers at the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek / Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI), Amsterdam are able to create a semantic database of all radiotherapy-related DICOM metadata that can be quickly searched with the standard query language SPARQL using terms from DICOM and a radiation oncology vocabulary.

SeDI will enable the researchers from the radiotherapy department to rapidly find the right DICOM objects for analysis, as well as accelerate ongoing research in outcome prediction, toxicity modelling and radiomics – areas of research that are essential to Rapid Learning and clinical decision support in radiation oncology.
