1.1 This practice provides guidance for non-destructive photographic analysis of spinal implants prior to, during, and after testing. The purpose of this practice is to provide methods for documenting notable changes in implant characteristics (e.g., surface defects, cracks, plastic deformation) that have occurred during the course of a mechanical test. Documenting these changes may assist in understanding if mechanical failure has occurred, and how.
