This sponge is designed to assist technologists in positioning patients for cross-table lateral examinations. The decubitus pad ensures that the patient is elevated into a position above the plane of the imaging receptor for adequate imaging of the targeted body part. Provides excellent support and spine correction for laterals and decubitus views. This product is radiolucent but not guaranteed to be artifact free.
Coated Sponges feature a proprietary medical grade, fluid-resistant, cleanable coating over a standard (core) foam interior. Minimal shadowing with low attenuation. Light green color. Coated sponges are radiolucent.
Non-Stealth Sponges are formed with traditional angles and do not feature our proprietary “flared” angles to offer significantly reduced artifacts during viewing. Non-stealth (or non-flared) sides may show artifacts when imaging, specifically when coating is applied.
