Replacing SEP-Triplets in SNOMED CT Using Tractable Description Logic Operators

Abstract

Reification of parthood relations according to the SEP-triplet encoding pattern has been employed in the clinical terminology SNOMED CT to simulate transitivity of the part-of relation via transitivity of the is-a relation and to inherit properties along part-of links.
