AbstractA keynote paper at the Euro PM2014 congress presented by Martin Wolff, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht GmbH, Germany, discussed the viability of processing medical implants from magnesium alloys by Powder Injection Moulding. Magnesium is of particular interest
for medical implant applications thanks to, amongst other things, its
excellent biodegradability and biocompatibility. Dr David Whittaker reviews the paper for PIM International.
