Wear testing of prosthetic joint components is fundamental for understanding wear mechanisms and improving the quality of manufactured orthopaedic prostheses. To this end, accurate measuring solutions are needed for quantifying wear volumes and characterizing the geometry of worn bearing surfaces. In this work, capability and accuracy of industrial computed tomography in wear assessment of prosthetic components are investigates. Advantages and limitations are determined in comparison with measurements by coordinate measuring machines.

Abstract

Wear testing of prosthetic joint components is fundamental for understanding wear mechanisms and improving the quality of manufactured orthopaedic prostheses. To this end, accurate measuring solutions are needed for quantifying wear volumes and characterizing the geometry of worn bearing surfaces. In this work, capability and accuracy of industrial computed tomography in wear assessment of prosthetic components are investigates. Advantages and limitations are determined in comparison with measurements by coordinate measuring machines.
