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!

X-Ray Lead Markers And Information

R & L 5/8" X-ray Film Markers - Black

X-Ray Lead Markers From Kemper Medical

x-ray lead markersWhether you’re a radiological professional at a dental practice, hospital, veterinary clinic, or chiropractic facility, Kemper Medical provides the x-ray lead markers you need to indicate all of the information that is medically and legally required for your field.

X-ray lead markers are effective because lead is a natural radiation blocker. When radiation fails to pass through certain markings, they will leave a negative space on the x-ray, through which certain important pieces of information are recorded.

All radiological technicians should be trained in the proper use of x-ray lead markers throughout the course of their schooling if they are using x-rays for diagnostic purposes, and they should be able to use them appropriately in any of their respective fields.

You may recognize x-ray lead markers by their various other names, which include:

  • Anatomical side markers
  • Lead markers
  • Pb markers
  • Radiographic film identification markers

X-ray lead markers give radiological technicians the ability to record information on x-rays, such as:

  • The exact time and date the x-ray was taken.
  • The patient’s name.
  • The radiographer (this is generally accomplished through an imprint of their initials).
  • The distinction between the left and right sides of the body.
  • The position the patient’s body was in at the time of the x-ray.

Our x-ray lead markers will give you all of the information you and your patients need, as they’ve been manufactured by the leading supply companies in the industry who have gained a reputation of quality and reliability over the years.

The Medical Necessity Of X-Ray Lead Markers

x-ray lead markersWith x-ray lead markers, you’ll be able to record all of the information required for medical purposes. This is an essential factor involved with accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. The ramifications of inaccurate diagnostics can be very costly. At best, they can result in less effective treatment, and at worst, in fatal outcomes for the patient.

All radiological technicians should understand that their x-ray lead markers should be placed within the main beam of radiographs, and that certain details should also be recorded, such as the distinction of the left side of the body from the right. This distinction is medically necessary for a number of reasons. Here are some conditions in which the reasons for such a distinction is obvious:

  • Dextrocardia: Those with this condition have their heart located 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.

These conditions should make the purpose for the left/right distinction quite obvious, however, there are many other, more subtle conditions in which this distinction is equally important. No matter how arbitrary it may seem to the layman, all medical facilities should be suing x-ray lead markers that make this distinction absolutely transparent through the use of clearly visible markings.

The Legal Necessity Of X-Ray Lead Markers

The importance of x-ray lead markers extend to the legal realm, in which strict legal requirements make certain markings a requirement for an x-ray’s use as a legal document. Failing to include these key markings will void their use as a legal document in the unfortunate event that a medical facility is to be involved in a lawsuit. Radiation has to pass through an x-ray lead marker in such a way that all of the required information becomes properly imprinted upon it in a concise, clear, and legible manner.

Depending on the medical facility, it may be a requirement that the radiological technician’s initials are recorded on the x-ray, or that they use their own personal x-ray lead marker for all radiological diagnostics that they perform.

Kemper Medical provides all of the x-ray lead markers that you need both legally and medically. No matter what the requirements might be, our x-ray lead markers will fulfill them.

Various Forms Of X-Ray Lead Markers

  • Standard Left/Right X-Ray Lead Markers: Being able to distinguish between the left and right sides of the body is an invaluable factor in accurate radiological diagnostics. Our x-ray lead markers will ensure that distinction. All medical facilities should incorporate the standard left/right radiology markers for both medical and legal purposes.
  • Informative X-Ray Lead Markers: These give rad techs the ability to record key pieces of information, such as the measurement standards, time elapsed, and date of the x-ray, as well as the patient’s name and the name of the radiographer.
  • Mammography X-Ray Lead Markers: These markers include a standardized set of abbreviations that were all created by the ACR (American College Of Radiology). This set is comprised of any different markers, all of which allow radiological technicians to label multiple mammographic images using a variety of imprints.
  • Positioning X-Ray Lead Markers: These are ideal for recording information such as the patient’s body position. They are also great for recording whether or not the patient was erect or supine, or weight bearing or not, during the time of the x-ray.
  • Sun-Dial X-Ray Lead Markers: With these x-ray lead markers, radiological technicians will have the ability to record information pertaining to the amount of time passed since the initial injury, or the time of their administration, and the taking of the x-ray itself. The center dial can record anywhere from fifteen minutes to forty eight hours.
  • Skin Markers: These x-ray lead markers give radiological technicians the ability to highlight various areas of the skin through scar tissue wire, bb markers, semi-translucent markers, and lead wire markers.

Recent Developments In X-Ray Lead Marker Technology

With technology constantly moving forward, it may be time for your to update your x-ray lead markers with some of the latest developments:

  • Clip Markers: These make attaching a marker to a cassette very easy.
