Why Radiology Lead Markers Are A Medical Necessity

Properly diagnosing patients requires information that only radiology lead markers can provide, such as a clear distinction of the left side of the body from the right. Not only can this lead to a misdiagnosis and subsequent mistreatment for normal patients in certain circumstances, it can lead to severe problems if the patient has the following conditions:

  • Dextrocardia: Those with this condition have their heart residing in the right side of their chest, rather than the left.
  • Situs Inversus: Those with this condition have all of their organs located on the opposite side of their body.

Needless to say, this can lead to some serious problems if the left and right sides of the body are not clearly indicated. However, it should be understood that this distinction is important for any patient, as problems can result from failure to make this indication even for physically normal patients. No matter how arbitrary it may seem to the layman, the left/right dichotomy should be clearly indicated on all medical x-rays.

Every medical radiological technician should have had comprehensive training on the proper use of radiology lead markers throughout the course of their schooling. Kemper Medical, Inc. provides the equipment they need to make certain required information clear and legible on the x-rays they take.

Why Radiology Lead Markers Are A Legal Necessity

When x-rays lack certain required information, they are rendered null and void in a court of law. Radiology lead markers should always be used in a medical facility, in case that facility is ever involved in a lawsuit for any reason.

In order for an x-ray to be considered a legally valid document, the radiation used to create it must pass through a radiology lead marker so as to produce clear and concise information.

Kemper Medical, Inc.’s x-ray lead markers provide the ability for radiology technicians to include all of this required information on every x-ray they produce, guarding them and the facility for which they work against possible legal action in the future. We provide the radiological markers you need to fulfill all medical and legal requirements.

Various Forms of Radiology Lead Markers

  • Standard Left/Right Radiology Lead Markers: These will give you the ability to clearly distinguish between the left and right hand sides of the body. At the very least, all medical facilities should have the Standard Left/Right Radiology Lead Markers, as they are an invaluable asset when it comes to radiological diagnostics for both medical and legal reasons.
  • Informative Radiology Lead Markers: These markers provide further information that radiological technicians may need, such as various measurement standards, time elapsed, the date the x-ray was taken, the patient’s name, and the name of the radiographer.
  • Mammography Radiology Lead Markers: The standardized set of abbreviations that are included with these radiology lead markers have all been created by the ACR (American College Of Radiology). There is a wide variety of markers within this particular set, and they will all give radiological technicians the ability to label multiple mammographic images via a variety of imprints.
  • Positioning Radiology Lead Markers: If you need to record information like the position of the patient’s body at the time the x-ray was taken, then these markers are the ideal product for you. Positioning Radiology Lead Markers are also useful if you need to record whether or not the patient was supine, erect, or weight bearing at the time of the x-ray.
  • Sun-Dial Radiology Lead Markers: These radiology lead markers give technicians the ability to record information related to the amount of time passed since the injury was sustained, the time of the patient’s administration, and the time in which the x-ray was taken. These include center dials that can record anywhere from fifteen minutes to forty eight hours.
  • Skin Markers: With these radiology lead markers, rad techs can highlight certain areas of the skin with the use of scar tissue wire, bb markers, semi-translucent markers, and lead wire markers.

Advancing The Technology Behind Radiology Lead Markers

Skin MarkersIf you haven’t updated your radiology lead markers in quite a long time, it may be time to do so. Modern technology is resulting in a lot of development when it comes to these instruments, such as:

  • Clip Markers: With these, you can easily attach a marker to a cassette.
  • Copper Backing: These are ideal for procedures involving high KV settings.
  • Classic Elite Markers: These are guaranteed to meet all of the demands of modern imaging procedures.
  • Wafer Thin Markers: With an easy bucky clearance, these will accommodate all of the latest modern digital equipment.

X-Ray Lead Markers

These instruments are invaluable for indicating certain information that has to be included on x-rays in order to proper diagnosis, and therefore treatment, to take place. Our x-ray lead markers will provide the various markings required in:

  • Dentist’s offices
  • Hospitals
  • Chiropractic facilities
  • Veterinarian clinics

And more.

Our x-ray lead markers are comprised of strong lead, which is a natural radiation blocker. They will leave clear, visible imprints on x-rays of all kinds, including information such as:

  • The patient’s name
  • The date and time of the x-ray
  • The name or initials of the radiographer
  • The right and left sides of the body
  • The position of the patient’s body

All medical radiological technicians should know how to properly use their x-ray lead markers, having been trained on them as part of their schooling. The reason for this is to ensure accurate diagnosis of the patient. For instance, it is imperative to distinguish the left side of the patient’s body from the right side in cases such as:

  • Dextrocardia: A condition in which the patient’s heart is located on the right side of the body rather than the left.
  • Situs Inversus: A condition in which all organs are located on the opposite side of the body.

X-ray markers are also important for legal reasons. Failing to include information from them can render an x-ray null and void if it ever has to be used as a medical document. X-ray marker information is imperative in case a medical facility should be involved in a lawsuit for any reason.

Laser Safety Glasses

Laser Safety GlassesAt Kemper Medical, Inc., we provide laser safety glasses that will protect your vision from harmful radiation, feel comfortable enough for you to wear throughout your entire shift, and look good enough that you won’t mind wearing them anyway. Our glasses protect your visual structures with strong, high quality Schott German optical lenses that have a lead equivalency of 0.75mm.

We provide laser safety glasses for:

  • Pain clinics
  • Imaging facilities
  • Dental clinics
  • Physicians offices
  • Doctors offices
  • Veterinarian offices

Many technicians have to work in an environment that puts them at risk for exposure to radiation on a regular basis, and it is this consistent exposure that is the main concern. Patients who are exposed to relatively little amounts of high level radiation throughout their lives don’t need as much protection, as it is the accumulative effect of radiation exposure in medical industries that can lead to fatal consequences over time.

Our laser safety glasses will protect:

  • The Iris – the colored part of the eye
  • The Sclera – the white outer layer of the eye
  • The Conjunctiva – the mucous membrane covering the front of the eye
  • The Retinal Blood Vessels – the tiny arteries and veins within the eye

However, the most important eye structure they will protect is the Lens, which is most sensitive to the ionizing effects of radiation. The lens is the clear portion of the eye and it is responsible for directing light onto the retina.

Our laser safety glasses will protect your eyes from suffering irreversible damage, which most often manifests in the form of radiation induced cataracts. These differ from age related cataracts in that they form in the posterior part of the lense, rather than the interior.

Our laser safety glasses have increased in popularity in:

  • Cath labs
  • Surgery suites
  • EP labs
  • Urological procedures
  • Interventional radiology
  • Pain management
  • Orthopedic surgery

If you need high quality and affordable laser safety glasses, contact Kemper Medical, Inc. today!

Laser Safety Glasses Provide The Visual Protection You Need

YAG Argon Alignment Laser Safety Glasses - Model #

Argon Alignment Laser Safety Glasses - Model #300If you are looking for laser safety glasses to protect yourself from radiation, then you know full well that you are selecting for more than just fashion. There is a whole list of factors to consider, such as the type of exam that is taking place, or the location of the monitor at the time of the exam. You may be required to be in close proximity to the patient, leading to the risk of receiving scatter radiation if you accidentally look toward the direction of the reflected laser beam. In such cases, it only takes an instant before serious damage can occur to your visual structures.

Fortunately, Kemper Medical has the laser safety glasses you need to protect against these and many other risks that come with working around high levels of radiation.

We provide products for all industries that involve radiological risks, including:

  • Pain clinics
  • Imaging facilities
  • Dental clinics
  • Physicians offices
  • Doctors offices
  • Veterinarian offices

And more.

Why Radiation Protection Is Crucial

Ray Ban 8352 Radiation Protection GlassesMany technicians work in environments in which they are at risk of being exposed to radiation on a regular basis. It is this consistent exposure that is the main factor of concern. The average person receives very little radiation exposure throughout their lifetime, even when factoring in x-rays for medical procedures. The individuals performing these x-rays, on the other hand, are at significantly higher risk of receiving radiation doses on a consistent basis, which can accumulate into hazardous levels over time. This can lead to serious health problems.

The higher one’s radiation levels, the greater their risk of ionization – the breaking up of neutral atoms into charged particles. The breakdown of atomic structure inevitably leads to the breakdown of cellular structure, from which cancer can occur.

Our laser safety glasses are made to reduce the amount of radiation exposure to the technician (and patient). The eyes are not only highly sensitive organs, they are also particularly vulnerable to radiation, making laser safety glasses all the more important.

How Our Laser Safety Glasses Provide Protection

Our glasses are comprised of high quality lead to protect your eyes from radiation damage throughout each procedure, be it in an x-ray lab, a dental practice, or a hospital.

Our laser safety glasses will protect all of your visual structures, including:

  • Iris: The colored part of the eye
  • Sclera: The white outer layer of the eye
  • Conjunctiva: The mucous membrane covering the front of the eye
  • Retinal Blood Vessels: The tiny arteries and veins inside of the eye

Oakley Jupiter Squared - CE CertifiedBut most importantly, we provide protection for the lens, which is the eye structure that is most at risk. The lens is the clear portion of the eye. It is the structure that directs and focuses light onto the retina. This precious and sensitive visual structure is unfortunately sensitive to radiation doses, and can sustain irreversible damage most often manifesting in the form of radiation induced cataracts. These are distinct from cataracts that occur naturally with age in that they form in the posterior part of the lense. Radiation exposure to the lens can easily lead to cell damage or mutation.

Our laser safety glasses will protect your visual structures through the use of the high quality Schott German optical lenses, which are comprised of a lead equivalency of 0.75mm. We also provide frames with 0.50mm Pb Eq of side protection. Even with all of this protective material, our glasses are light and comfortable, making them easy to wear for long periods of time.

Kemper Medical provides a wide variety of laser protective glasses frame styles for maximum radiation protection. Our equipment has become increasingly popular in:

  • Cath Labs
  • Surgery suites
  • EP labs
  • Urological procedures
  • Interventional radiology
  • Pain management
  • Orthopedic surgery

Types of Laser Safety Glasses We Provide

Wiley X Legend Radiation Protection Glasses

Protective Glasses

Our Protective Glasses are both comfortable and stylish, and are easy to wear throughout your entire shift if need be. Whether it’s at a radiology lab, a medical office, dental office, or hospital, these glasses will provide protection without leading to discomfort or getting in the way.

These glasses are some of the highest quality laser safety glasses available in the industry, and when you purchase them from Kemper Medical, you are guaranteed to be getting them at some of the lowest prices possible.

Because we are dedicated to providing technicians with the safety they require at affordable prices, we also provide free shipping on almost all of our laser safety glasses.

Radiation Glasses

Ray Ban 6356 Radiation Protection GlassesWhether you’re dealing with direct beam or scatter radiation, laser safety glasses should always be worn. In fact, any time one is working in an environment with the potential for scatter radiation, they should be wearing radiation glasses throughout their entire shift. Unfortunately, many technicians avoid wearing them consistently as they find them to be unappealing or irritating. That’s why Kemper Medical provides premium leaded glasses that are both good looking and comfortable.

We also provide different prescription and non-prescription lenses so they can be worn consistently throughout your entire shift.

Leaded Eyewear

When it comes to x-ray radiation, leaded eyewear is crucial. We provide laser safety glasses comprised of high quality, protective lead for working around a number of different x-ray machines, including:

  • Traditional x-rays
  • Digital x-rays
  • CT image scanners
  • Interventional radiology equipment

Ray Ban 5268 Radiation Protection GlassesAnd more. Our leaded eyewear is especially important if you are working in an area that does not have a shielded control room. When retreat into a safe area is not an option, our leaded eyewear will provide the safety you need.

While seemingly contrary to intuition, exposure to primary beam radiation is less dangerous than exposure to scatter radiation. When radiation bounces off various surfaces such as medical equipment and even the bodies of patients, it can scatter off of multiple surfaces and make its way to you even if you are out of the direct line of sight.

Whether you are dealing with primary beam radiation, scatter radiation, or both, our leaded eyewear will protect your visual structures from consistent radiation exposure and provide long-term benefits.

Premium Leaded Glasses

At Kemper Medical, you will find premium leaded glasses at some of the lowest prices possible. Because we are dedicated to the health and safety of technicians in all radiological fields, we guarantee that our low prices do not mean sub par products. Our premium leaded glasses are comprised of high quality materials and created by the best manufacturers in the industry. You aren’t likely to find a better deal anywhere else.

Our premium leaded glasses combine style, comfort, and protection so that you will feel comfortable wearing them for as long as they are required.
