JJJ.5 Multishot Without Texture As Point Clouds and Merged Mesh

Use-case: Objects, which need to be scanned from multiple points of view, such as the nose.

After the acquired point clouds have been merged by a post-processing software application, the calculated surface mesh is stored in the same study in a new series. The Referenced Surface Data Sequence (0080,0013) points to all origin Surface Scan Point Cloud instances that have been used for reconstruction. The Registration Method Code Sequence (0080,0003) is used to indicate that multiple point clouds have been merged.
