Abstract

This article will present a description of the semi-implicit semantic properties of the Systematized Nomenclature of Human and Veterinary Medicine, also called SNOMED International. It will focus on the formalism of SNOMED and its computational properties using the disease definition as an example. Additional information will be provided in order to convert semi-implicit links found between SNOMED concepts into explicit computational semantic links.
