project began in 1986 at the National Library of Medicine and the first version was released in 1989 (Humphreys and Lindberg 1993; Humphreys et al.
Consider the definitions in table 1: the manifestation relation from UMLS
has a very precise definition, but we were unable to find examples of it in medical texts.
Inter-Media Concept-Based Medical Images Indexing and Retrieval with UMLS
However, the medical librarians were less skillful in items covered under statement 5, applications in emerging areas of biomedicine, computational biology and health information, which involves GenBank, EMBL, DNA Data Bank of Japan, SWISS-PROT, PIR, UMLS
, RxNorm, SNOMED CT, DICOM, and HL7).
Con el mismo proposito que caracteriza el SNOMED-CT, el UMLS
se diseno para la implementacion y el desarrollo de la HCE, buscando facilitar el desarrollo de sistemas que <<comprendan>> el significado del lenguaje medico (22).
Efforts in biomedical ontology such as UMLS
(Unified Medical Language System), GO (Gene Ontology) and SNOMED-CT (Systematized nomenclature of medicine clinical terms), emerge as cornerstones supporting better taxonomy for terminologies and semantic interoperability.

O repositorio de conhecimento foi composto pela ontologia Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA), uma ontologia de referencia no dominio anatomico (ROSSE; MEJINO, 2003, 2008), e pelo metatesauro Unified Medical Language System (UMLS
), um repositorio que integra varios vocabularios biomedicos (BODENREIDER, 2004).
We used the National Library of Medicine (NLM) MetaMap, which is a program to map biomedical text to the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS
) Metathesaurus or, equivalently, to discover Metathesaurus concepts referred to in text .
