Description: Questions/purposes We developed and validated a technique to quantify polyethylene wear in tibial inserts using microcomputed tomography (micro-CT), a nondestructive high-resolution imaging technique that provides detailed images of surface geometry in addition to volumetric measurements.
Conclusions Micro-CT can provide precise and accurate volumetric measurements in addition to quantifiable three-dimensional surface deviation maps for the entire insert surface. The technique has the potential to evaluate wear in wear simulator trials and retrieval studies.
