Radiopacity test*

Some materials and products can easily be seen in an X-ray image, others are difficult to discern within the human body. Therefore the probability of locating the material or product with X-ray techniques, like fluoroscopy, angiography and X-ray computed tomography (CT), has to be determined.

MR:comp has been officially accredited to conduct tests of radiopacity according to ASTM F640.
