Shop a wide variety of x-ray markers at Med-Vet International. X-ray markers have many different names like anatomical side markers, lead markers, pb markers, and radiographic film identification markers. These markers are used to mark x-ray films. The anatomical markers are placed within the primary beam of radiographs and are visible in films. Find the classic "L" and "R" markers or find more specific markers for your needs.
The "L" and "R" markers are commonly used to label the anatomical side of the body in films. Conditions like situs inversus, when all of the internal organs are on the opposite side, can easily be misinterpreted and stresses the importance of using markers. When radiographs misrepresent right from left, they raise a huge risk for medical errors. Some markers can label more such as the date, name of patient, positioning of the body, and more. The benefits of using these markers are that they are easy to read and can withstand long exposure in radiographs.
