X-Ray Detectable Gauze
Sponges used in surgery can be responsible for serious complication or even death when they are not easily detected and removed. Their presence is often masked by nearby bone. However, X-ray detectable sponges are affordable, easily detected and suitable for operating room and surgical applications. Within the gauze is a heat-bonded barium sulfate marker to allow vivid and accurate x-ray visibility. With a barium sulfate content of more than fifty-five percent, these particular sponges exceed the minimum requirements.

Many surgical applications require an x-ray detectable sponge. The unique composition of this type of sponge allows them to be easily located within the body in the body, similar to the X-Ray Detectable Lap Sponges. It is constructed from USP Type VII gauze, which incorporates a dual-colored element. By combining a white and blue radiopaque strand it becomes visible when saturated with blood. They are latex free and manufactured with a particular double vacuum process that eliminates lint, which minimize the presence of lint. They are made from highly-absorbent cotton and have a heat-bonded sulfate marker, which makes it extremely visible. They are suitable for sterilized operating rooms and for all surgical applications.
