Top 10 Xray Markers Should Buy

Xray Markers

Xray Markers, also referred to as: anatomical side markers, 1 Pb markers, lead markers, x-ray lead markers, or radiographic film identification markers, are designed to mark x-ray films, both in hospitals and in industrial workplaces (like on aeroplane parts and motors). They’re applied on radiographic images to see an anatomical side of the body, date from the procedure, and can include patients name.

Most Xray markers consist of the right and also a left letter using the radiographer’s initials. There can also be found markers to indicate positioning from the body e. g. supine, or on time when performing procedures like an Intravenous pyelogram.

It really has been suggested that radiographic markers are a possible fomite for harmful bacteria like MRSA, which they ought to clean regularly; this, however, Isn’t always done.

Some Xray markers are created with cartoon pictures or glitter included upon the markers. This style marker, referred to as max markers, indicate right or left side also includes a technologists initials. Most importantly a tacky substance, Handi-Tak is designed to carry these markers towards the X-ray plate during imaging. This Tacky tape ought to clean between uses and discarded when visibly soiled.

What is X-ray?

X-rays are one of the electromagnetic waves which are lights that we can see. But the wavelength of the X-ray is so small that the frequency of the X-ray is very large and the energy it has is very large. X-rays have long sizes ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometers with frequencies ranging from 30 mapsHertz to 30 exaHertz and have energy ranging from 120 electrodes to 120 kilos of electroVolt.

How does xray work?

The xray shows the xray as a formation of an orderly triangular pattern such as those produced in the focusing tititk. This provides a good purpose in terms of emphasis on the work of xray radiation outside the tube. But the actual radiation is not like that, in fact the xray is like a visible light.

Spread from source through a straight line that spreads in all directions except stopped by xray absorbent material. For this reason the xray tube is closed in a single metal tube housing capable of stopping most of the xray radiation. Only useful xray are left out of the tube through a window / window.

The useful xray was referred to as the primary file. The ray beam located at the center of the line is called central xray. High voltage generation in the xray tube is required to generate xray files. The electrical circuit is designed so that its kV can be changed in a large range – typically 30 kV to 100 kV- or more. When lower kV is used, the xray has longer wavelengths and is more easily absorbed so-called soft xray. It must be understood that the xray file consists of rays of different wavelengths. The radiation generated in the higher kV range will have greater energy and shorter wavelengths.

Application of xray

The application of xray was first used in the security and guarding sectors. Generally explored on the security of government buildings, malls, hotels, military training environment, apartments, airports, ports etc. therefore the X-ray sensor is helpful in the detection and identification process.

The process of X-ray formation?

In order for X-rays to be formed, the following components are required:
• X-Ray tube
It functions to produce X-rays which is a vacuum tube in which there is a negatively charged cathode that acts as an electron generator and a positively charged Anode that serves as a target of electron firing.
• Source electron (filament)
Filament serves as an electron producer
• High voltage electricity.

The process of X-ray formation:

1. Filament is heated to produce electrons, by passing an electric current on the filament. After the filament is incandescent, the heat of the electrons from the cathode (filament) is released so that the electron clouds form around the filament.
2. Once the electrons are formed on the filaments, the X-ray tube is given a high voltage up to thousands of volts (kilovolt) so that it triggers the electrons to move to the anode.
3. The fired electrons will hit the target and will interact with the atoms of the target. The electron interaction with the target (anode) will cause the formation of heat (99%) and X-ray (1%).

10 Best Radiology Markers Available on Market

Radiology Markers

In the inspection roses, each radiographer must include an appropriate marker and clearly identify the patient’s body part, right side (R) or left (L) of the patient’s body. In radioglast are obliged to include marker correctly as radiology markers of a body part of the patient. A radiographer and physician should see the markers to determine the right limb or body part. The marker itself is usually made of tin and placed directly on the IR. The marker looks opaque (white) on the radiographic image along with the body part being examined. Marking markers should not write “R” or “L” hands on radiographs after processing. However, there are exceptions to the use of markers for certain projections made during the surgical procedure. Often, a radiograph that does not contain markers that lead to accurate or identification of the patient should be repeated. This will harm the patient because it will increase the dose of radiation that will be absorbed by the body. Therefore, a radiographer should really avoid the error of making the radiograph, one of which the use of markers.

In the Radiology examination activity, a marker is one important component in making a radiograph. Common markers are used to indicate “The photographed side”, indicating the position of the object when it is being photographed, or even the sequence and the phases of the shooting is performed.

Picture Marker and Patient Identification

In Radiography there are at least two types of markers or markers that should be printed on a radiograph. The two types of markers include (1) Patient Identity along with date of radiograph manufacture (2) Anatomical Side Marker

Patient Identity Marker and Date of Radiograph Making (On Conventional Film-Screen Cassette System)
In general, the patient information listed is the name, date, photo number, and the name of an agency or hospital name. Usually, this identity marker and date are available on index cards which are then “Photoflash” on the film using the light-based ID-based printer. In general, for this marker is provided a little space on the corner of the end of a conventional cassette that is covered by “Lead Block” in the film holder. Each tape or film holder must have an outside marker indicating or indicating the location of the patient’s marker ID placement, including the date of manufacture of the radiograph.

In making the radiograph, the cassette portion showing the location of the patient’s ID placement should also be noted, so that the area does not cover or disturb the essence of the anatomy to be presented.

Patient ID Marker Location Locations

In the technique of giving or attaching the marker text, the location of the patient’s marker ID marker also shows a connection to the anatomical portion of the photographed patient. The basic rules for the chest and abdomen are (1) putting the patient ID information at the top of the “Image Receptor” margin for chest examination or “Chests” and (2) for abdominal examination of patient ID information placed at the bottom of “Image Receptor”. This marker or marker always lies in accordance with the body part or essence of the anatomy to be presented.

Anatomical Side Radiology Marker

Radiopaque markers, either Right or Left should always be attached to each radiographic image, and indicate the right or left side of the patient’s body or the part of which body extremities are photographed, Right or Left. The installation of this anatomy side marker may be a full word installation, Right or Left, and can also be installed in the initial “R” or “L”. This anatomical side marker is usually placed directly on the inside of the Image Receptor, or on the “Lateral Portion” in the irradiation field. Please note, the installation of this marker also not to disturb the patient’s anatomy picture presented.

Remember, the Radiopaque Marker should be placed inside the irradiation field, so it can be exposed to the X-ray beam and enter in the radiographing area.

The two markers, both the ID marker and the Date or the anatomy side marker, must be correctly and correctly attached to all radiographic images. In general, it is not justifiable to write information or markers on the radiograph, after the radiograph processing is complete, as this will cause the risk of “Missmarkings”. A radiograph taken or produced without the use of the above two markers allows for repetition of photographs, which only adds a usable radiation dose to the patient.

Additional Marker or Identification

For special inspection, additional markers or identification may also be used, for example

(1) Initial Radiographers, in general, these markers are installed, similar to the installation of R and L markers to show radiographers who make radiographs. Sometimes, the inspection room numbers are also listed.

(2) Time Indicators usually used to record the elapsed time in the examination photo series, for example 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes and 20 minutes. This series photo is usually done on “Intravenous Urogram” (IVU) checking.

Some Examples of Commonly Used Marker Markers

(3) Other important markers commonly used in radiographic examination by using decubitus position that serves to show the identification of the top side direction. An “Upright” or “Erect” marker should also be used to identify both chest and abdominal photographs made in an upright position. Because the photo with this upright position will be compared to the photo position “Recumbent” or photo lay. And under certain conditions like this, a top-side direction marker is also installed.

(4) Markers in the form of “Inspiration” (INSP) and “Expiration” (EXP)
