This paper presents a possibility to use Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy as nondestructive evaluation method for ceramic elements of prosthesis such as ceramic femoral heads. With this method can be emphasized the incorrect sintering of these elements as well as eventually cracks. If the number of resonance peaks is big enough, the elements of elasticity matrix can be determined, demonstrated by effective measurements on zirconia with different stabilizers cylindrical samples taken into study.
