Abstract

In this paper, we describe a clinical laboratory scenario, where the next generation Ambient Intelligent (AmI) medical devices semantically coordinate with each other not only for the diagnosis of Pheochromocytoma and/or Neuroblastoma tumors, but also the forwarding of a higher level of interpreted results to a remote health information system, using a 3G mobile device as a gateway, to assist a health professional for meticulous diagnosis. These AmI medical devices are enriched with our SOA based middleware infrastructure, named Semantic Medical Devices Space, which supports ontology based semantic discovery of desired medical devices, and provides Semantic Web Service based interface for exchanging the measurement results.
