X-ray markers are a requirement for professional radiological technicians for the proper completion of x-ray diagnostics. Whether they are working in a chiropractic facility, a doctor’s office, a dentist’s office, a hospital, or a veterinarian clinic, these tools are a crucial factor in achieving an accurate and reliable diagnosis.
Radiological technicians are trained in the proper use of x-ray markers during the course of their schooling. They should be knowledgeable on how to use x-ray markers in their specific fields.
X-ray markers are referred to by a number of different names, most commonly:
The purpose of x-ray markers is to record information on x-rays. These tools are used for:

Proper radiological diagnostics, like all diagnostics, depend on recording relevant information properly. This is why all radiological technicians should understand how to use x-ray markers, so that patients are not misdiagnosed and improperly treated.
Rad techs need to know exactly how to position their markers within the main beam of the radiographs. Certain details need to be properly indicated as well, such as the left and right side of the body part that is being diagnosed via x-ray.
It is this left/right distinction that is the main reason for the x-ray marker. Failing to distinguish one from the other can lead to fatal misdiagnosis when it comes to conditions like:
These are the most obvious conditions in which a proper left/right distinction is necessary, but there are other, more subtle conditions where the distinction is equally important.
X-ray markers are required in virtually all medical facilities. It doesn’t matter if their use seems arbitrary, every x-ray requires a clearly visible mark indicating the left side of the body from the right in order to guarantee proper diagnosis and treatment.
The importance of x-ray markers go beyond their medical importance and into the realm of legality. Failing to use an x-ray marker in the creation of an x-ray diagnostic will lead to the voiding of its later use as a legal document in the event that a medical facility is involved in a lawsuit. Radiation must pass through an x-ray marker before an x-ray can be officially regarded as a legal document, and it must do so in a way that leaves a clear, legible print on the x-ray, indicating all of the required information for a proper diagnosis.
The initials of the radiological technician may need to be included on the x-ray as well. This is contingent on the medical facility itself. It may be a requirement that radiological technicians own their own signature x-ray markers that include their initials.
