Glass and Medicine
For centuries, glass has been an important part of both the practical and the esthetic aspects of our culture. This paper documents three areas of glass research and development pioneered over the last 40 years that have greatly enhanced the quality of life (bioactive glasses and dental glass-ceramics) and the length of life (radioactive glass microspheres).
