7.13.3.1 Implant Template Information Entity

An Implant Template Information Entity specifies a 2D- and/or 3D-template representing a physical implant. The IE specifies mechanisms for implant assembly, i.e., the rigid connection of two or more implants.

The Implant Template IE may be related to a Surface IE (see Section A.1.2.18) or to an Encapsulated Document IE (see Section A.1.2.16) for the specification of the 2D- or 3D-template.

The Implant Template IE may be related to a Frame of Reference IE (see Section A.1.2.5) to support registration of the template with Patient anatomical landmarks in a separate Frame of Reference.

The Implant Template IE may be related to an Implant Assembly Template IE for the specification of multi-part assemblies. The Implant Template IE may be related to an Implant Template Group IE for shared management of a set of templates.
