    Abstract

    In this paper we investigate representation of the part-whole relationship in SNOMED CT. We discuss the current approach, based on "SEP" triples, and several translations of it, which involve DLs at different levels of expressivity. We intend that our analysis will concretely inform the SNOMED community about the important tradeoffs of expressivity for their ontology, and help with future decisions about the representation of the SNOMED CT's anatomical taxonomy.
