X-Ray vision in 360° - Within the EU project MgSafe Hanna Slominska and Kamila Iskhakova are doing their PhD at the HZG, but conduct their experiments at the HZG outstation at the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron DESY. They use the special X-ray light at the beamlines there to make even the smallest material processes visible. These investigations help to monitor the degradation of the magnesium implants and the regeneration of the surrounding bone at high resolution. This is of particular importance as the implant is required to yield sufficient stability during healing and should quickly be dissolved afterwards.

About the EU project MgSafe

In the EU project MgSafe, 15 doctoral students in eight different countries are working on developing and improving imaging techniques for biodegradable magnesium implants. Biodegradable magnesium implants are particularly useful as they degrade in the body and thus make a second operation for the removal of the implant after fracture unnecessary.

360° X-Ray vision video

In the new 360° video Hanna Slominska and Kamila Iskhakova take us on a tour through the laboratories in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld. Jonathan Espiritu and Marwa Chaabane, both from other MgSafe partners, are featuring.

You can watch the video on your computer as well as on mobile devices.
