Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy: application to noninvasive examination of some medical prosthesis

  title={Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy: application to noninvasive examination of some medical prosthesis},
  author={Adriana Savin and Raimond Grimberg and Mihail Liviu Craus},
This paper presents to use the Resonant Ultrasound Spectr oscopy (RUS) as nondestructive examination method for determination of the density changing, elastic and geo metrical properties of the object to be examined. The method is applied at the noninvasive evaluation of the f emoral head prosthetic and of the artificial cervical discs made from yttria stabilized tetragonal zirconia. This m ethod does not require coupling fluid between the transducer and the element to be controlled.

Implants for surgery - Ceramic materials based on yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia (Y-TZP) (ISO 13356:2008, IDT)

ISO 13356:2015 specifies the requirements and corresponding test methods for a biocompatible and biostable ceramic bone-substitute material based on yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia (Y-TZP) for use as a material for surgical implants.

Bone scintigraphy: Part 2. Orthopedic bone scanning.

Bone scanning provides a functional assessment of skeletal pathology not available with conventional radiography or special radiographic techniques such as CT and MRI, and can provide the orthopedic surgeon with practical information concerning the cause of the patient's pain, the true significance of otherwise questionable radiographic findings, the extent of disease and the results of Orthopedic surgical treatment.
