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)

Here is some radiology markers that avalaible on the market :

Radiology Markers No Initial

Radiology Markers 1 or 2 Initial

 

Note: Pictures are not to size.

The picture shown represents the format in which your marker will be made.

This set contains the following:

  • 2 markers (Your choice of 1/2″ R&L, R&R, or L&L)
  • 1 or 2  5/16″ initials or numbers
  • 1 stainless steel ball position indicator surrounded by a lead free alloy ring that is ultrasoniclly sealed
  • Frame is made of polycarbonate
  • A modified hole to attach markers back to back with a lanyard that has a bulldog clip (lanyard sold separately)
  • Back of the marker reads “RETURN TO RADIOLOGY”, “PbMarker.com”
  • All characters are made of a lead free alloy encased in clear resin

NOTE: Our lead free alloy IS radiopaque, which means that ALL initials, numbers, and any Motif add-ons WILL show on the film.

NOTE: Adding a copper filter will reduce marker burn-out during high kVp exposures. If using low kVp, marker will appear as a white square without characters on the film due to poor penitration.

NOTE: Lanyard(s) are sold separately.

Dimensions*:

  • Length — 2-3/16″

What is Radiology

WHAT IS RADIOLOGY

For some people may not know what is radiology, and some even think it’s related to the usual Radio to listen to favorite songs or radio channels. Hmm, sometimes I personally if I hear it feels ‘jleb’ because it is less popular in the Radiology community, but for most of my friends also know about Radiology.

Okay well now I will discuss a bit about “What is Radiology?” Check this out guys: D Radiology is the science of medicine to see the human body parts using radiation or wave radiation, both electromagnetic waves and mechanical waves. Initially the frequency used is x-ray, but modern technological advances use ultrasonic ultrasonography (ultrasonic scanning) such as ultrasonography (ultrasound) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Radiology itself is divided into two parts namely Radiodiagnostik and Radiotherapy. What’s the difference ?? Gini, if radiodiagnostic is to diagnose the disease by using x-rays, while Radiotherapy for menterapi or treatment of disease using x-ray radiation.

For example for radiodiagnostik, for example you have an accident and have a broken bone, before the surgery then the doctor told to be rontgen first to mendtahui or mendituosa which part of the bone is broken, well this is called as radiodiagnostik.

As for Radiotherapy for example is for patients who suffer from cancer, in this case the cancer will be turned off by radiation therapy with therapy system or gradually that is by way of irradiation of the object of the affected cancer.

For radiation workers referred to as Radiographers, but for radiotherapy workers referred to as Radiotherapists and for ultrasound workers called Sonografer.
