Temporal phenomenology in Roentgen semiotics

In this study, we characterize a ground of meaning for each relate of a Roentgen sign. In this scheme, each relate ground includes a perceptual domain, a domanial segmentation, and a temporal phenomenology. The temporal phenomenology is selected to satisfy the requirements of diagnostic imaging and is based upon the categorical ontology of Peirce and the formal ontology of Grenon and Smith. Our objective is to show that these relate grounds provide the interpreter of Roentgen signs with the minimum collateral knowledge necessary to initiate the process of diagnostic semiosis.

Keywords:: relate ground; Peircean categories; formal ontology; temporal phenomenology
