ASTM F640-12 Radiopacity Testing

ASTM F640-12 Radiopacity testing is important in the biomedical and related fields.

Radiopacity testing is the ability of a material to impede the passage of x-rays, thus allowing for visibility in an x-ray. This allows for devices to be tracked in vivo during a medical procedure. Radiopacity of a test article can be determined either qualitatively or quantitatively. Testing is often a design input for device design control documentation. We use various x-ray modalities to characterize the possible range of a device’s radiopacity.

We are actively working to set international standards for testing radiopacity.
