Radiographic marker

A radiographic marker is a radiopaque structure of known dimension. The term also applies to a material incorporated in, or applied to, a radiographic template in order to yield positional or dimensional information. The importance of radiographic markers is due in part to their function: they mark the position of specific x-ray images or areas of interest in an x-ray image. Pro X-ray markers provide dental and medical offices with a variety of marker options that can be personalized according to color, style, font, and initials. These types of personalized markers can help identify the technician who performed the x-ray and aid in x-ray tracking. X-ray marker holders can also be ordered to provide a safe and organized way to store x-ray markers. Some medical or dental offices may choose to select a personalized marker holder that reflects the style, design, or marketing scheme of their practice.
