It is obvious that all the elements in a metallic prosthesis implanted in the human body may have beneficial or detrimental effects on the tissue-prosthesis interference. For this reason, the precise knowledge of the chemical composition and structure of an implantable metallic material becomes a major requirement for estimating the medical prosthesis behavior and minimizing the risk of rejection of the implant by the human body. This paper presents an elemental and structural analysis of some potentially biocompatible materials, such as AISI 316 and Co-Cr-Mo alloys.
In this presentation are evidenced instrumental characterization by Electronic Scanning Microscopy (SEM) equipped with EDS / WDS of aluminum alloys such 2024 alloy with multiple synergistic purposes as: acquisition of new knowledge, increase the amount of information obtainable about the material, increasing the efficiency and the quality of the tests, characterization of special destination alloys and assessing their conformity with the specified requirements. In this direction, it requires both the knowledge the test methods (theoretical basis, test method, procedure relating to the method, quality assurance testing) as well material characteristics investigated. These aspects are necessary for test system design, and preliminary interpretation of experimental results.
