Advent of the Semantic Web resulted to an increasing research interest to apply semantic web technologies for integrating knowledge representation and management in medical applications. The ultimate goal of this research effort is to investigate the potential of employing Topic Map (TM) standard as a semantic web enabling technology, in order to deploy a TM-based system that provides diagnosis support utilities for malignant melanoma cases. Towards supporting the development of such a system, an advanced topic map software tool (Yellow-TM) has been implemented and its deriving architecture and advanced functionalities are presented in the context of this paper.
