HealthAgents proposes an agent-based distributed decision support system for brain tumour diagnosis and prognosis which employs Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy techniques and genomic profiles. From a knowledge representation view point the distributed nature and the heterogeneity of the data to be integrated pose a number of challenging problems. This paper shows how Conceptual Graphs can be employed to describe the data sources in the HealthAgents system. Such knowledge representation based description of data allows for reasoning power when querying and for data modularisation capabilities.
