Nearly half the weight of stainless steel and more flexible than many other materials, titanium is top-choice for surgical instruments. It is durable with mechanical properties similar to bone and is also known to be MRI safe because it is nonmagnetic. Titanium is the preferred choice for nonmagnetic tools for repairing MRI machines such as screw drivers, pliers, crescent wrenches, and more.
Because titanium is biocompatible, it is a prime candidate for implantable medical devices. Titanium is non-toxic and is not rejected by the body when implanted.
