At a time when medical imaging technology is rapidly advancing, one of the oldest materials, platinum iridium marker bands, still stands out as the gold standard in medical imaging. While more modern alternatives have been developed over recent years that offer cheaper and lighter solutions, few can match this classic material’s reliability and durability. For […]

Choosing between different types of metals and alloys is an important decision for any engineer, mechanic, or professional working on a project involving these materials. You might be wondering what the difference is between tantalum metal and tantalum tungsten alloys, and how to make sure you choose the right one for your needs. In this […]

NEODYMIUM, GADOLINIUM, TERBIUM, Dysprosium, HOLMIUM, ERBIUM NEODYMIUM Atomic symbol: Nd Atomic weight: 144.24 Atomic number: 60 Electron configuration: 2-8-18-22-8-2 Oxidation states: +3 State of matter: solid Heavy metal, brittle Discovered in 1885 by Carl Auer von Welsbach Boils at 3127°C, melts at 1010°C Notes: Used in special alloys and glasses, neodymium is a silvery-white color […]

Crucibles are specialized containers for melting metallic materials at very high temperatures. The molten material is cast into new objects or used to make new alloys (different metals combined in specific proportions). Since crucibles are used to melt materials at high temperatures, the material used to make the crucible must have a higher melting point […]

The introduction of radiopaque markers into modern medical procedures has revolutionized the way in which specialists gather information from inside the body. When these markers were first introduced, they allowed for more exacting and detailed imaging than ever before. Knowing how and when to use these markers is essential for any medical professional involved in […]

If you’re looking for a cutting-edge medical imaging technique with precision accuracy and reliability, the platinum iridium marker bands provide just that. These small markers are placed around any area of tissue or organ that requires monitoring and produce detailed images in real time to assist doctors in making informed decisions. Not only do they […]
