Interface for making SVG formatted schemata

We propose expressing morphology and hemodynamics in complex congenital heart disease (CHD) simple and exact, thereby helping doctors to share the knowledge with patients. A typically during an explanation to the patient, their family and medical staffs, a handwriting illustration (schema) is used. However, CHD has wide variations. Consequently, it is not easy to make a comprehensive and high-quality schema. In the vector schema interface system that we have developed, many schemata of basic CHDs can be expressed by combining typical parts of the heart, and then exchanging each part from a resulting normal heart schema to express a desired form of CHD.
