An implant register can consist of a product and or patient registry. A Clinical Quality Registry (CQR) with treatment data also is conceivable. The quality of the register is determined by the quality of the data collection. Due to the complexity of the questions, the quality of possible evaluations and to avoid conflicts of interest, it is recommended to see these fields separately and to leave the evaluation to scientific studies. Conflicts of interest are indicated. The existence of a

The detection of discrete abnormalities with the help of algorithms (artificial intelligence) can be seen as a project for the future. Besides the decisive parameters for the success of implants such as reliable approval procedures, good education and training of users and a quality-oriented working environment, the implant register represents an additional benefit. Due to the extremely complex nature of the problem, the question of resources has to be asked in relation to the different significance of the various implant applications.
