Surface characterization of titanium plasma spray (TPS) coated and additive manufactured (AM) discs.

Mean Porosity (%), mean ± SD58.8 ± 6.260.0 ±3.7
Mean Pore Size (μm), mean ± SD141.7290.6
Tissue Interface Height (μm)7431051
Estimated Average Available Surface Area (mm2)649.391153.67
*Estimated Surface Contact Angle θ (°), mean ± SD105.2 ± 12.470.1 ± 9.9
  • * Note: Surface contact angle could not be measured on HA-coated discs due to their near perfect surface wettability.
