Polymer Solutions for Imaging Equipment
Non-invasive imaging is one of medicine’s superpowers—allowing physicians to see into our bodies to detect internal injuries or anomalies. But non-invasive medical imaging equipment has vulnerabilities. As a manufacturer, you can minimize those vulnerabilities by selecting PolyOne materials that shield medical imaging equipment from the effects of harsh hospital cleaning chemicals, electrical interference, and extreme heat. Your selection of the appropriate materials can protect patients from the side effects of medical imaging. Also, when using imaging equipment, PolyOne has polymeric alternatives to the use of lead blankets, when limiting exposure during non-invasive medical and dental imaging. Finally, our elastomer products can dampen noise and vibrations when using the equipment.
Protect practitioners and patients from excessive radiation during CT scans and X-rays by designing equipment surrounded by protective materials.
