Resource efficiency in medicine


Most magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) devices function with a super-strength neodymium-based magnet. The lasers found in medical scanners contain beryllium, which is treasured for its X-ray qualities. Prosthetic devices, implants and surgical instruments contain tantalum and niobium, which make it possible to design very resistant anticorrosive steels, which the human body tolerates rather well. There are also platinoids in pacemakers.
