The paper is devoted to the development of logical-structural models of presentation of knowledge in the field of Integrative Scientific Medicine at verbal, formal and machine-interpreted levels. The logical and structural models of knowledge representation are the basis of the onto-oriented knowledge base of Integrative scientific medicine, reflect the structure of its theory and provide unification, standardization of the technology of presenting information (data and knowledge) as a result of multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies of national and traditional medical trends that claim for joining the Integrative Scientific Medicine. On the basis of developed models using the OWL language and the Protégé environment, a computer ontology of the special scientific theory of Chinese Image Medicine was created that is used for an onto-oriented expert system, an electronic multimedia education system and a system for professional activities in the field of Chinese Image Medicine as a promising component of Integrative Scientific Medicine.
