Question Asked on 4/30/2014

Do adhesives need to be radiopaque?

Answer Response by Dr. Suh on 4/29/2014

Radiopacity is only required if the film thickness of the adhesive layer is greater than 20-25 microns, otherwise it cannot be detected on a radiograph. All BISCO adhesives are 5-15 microns thick, and therefore do not need to be radiopaque.
