A.61 GENERIC IMPLANT TEMPLATE INFORMATION OBJECT DEFINITION

A.61.1 Generic Implant Template IOD Description

The Generic Implant Template Information Object Definition (IOD) specifies the description of a 2D- and/or 3D-template representing a rigid and passive implant. The specific properties of flexible implants, such as silicone implants, and active implants such as cardiac pacemakers are not reflected. The IOD contains mechanisms for implant assembly, i.e. the rigid connection of two or more implants and implant registration, i.e. the placement of an implant in relation to anatomical landmarks.

The Generic Implant Template is a kind of Implant Template (see Section 7.10).

A.61.3 Generic Implant Module IOD Module Table

Implant Templates can contain 2D drawings as well as 3D models describing one implant. At least one of the two must be present in one Instance; both may be present in the same Instance.
