The medical device industry has seemed rather reluctant to integrate holographic technology into their product lines. While independent researchers have demonstrated the great potential for holography in imaging and display, it appears that holographic techniques may have the greater potential to solve some of the in-vitro testing and quality and process control problems peculiar to the medical device industry. Examples of these techniques include in-vitro testing of strain distributions surrounding bone plates, contouring for wear properties of artificial joints, and rapid nondestructive determination of leak rates in implantable electronics packages. With new advances in optics and electro-optics comes the hope that these and similar techniques may soon become integral parts of medical device manufacturing.
