Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Image Contrast
PEEK-OPTIMA Image Contrast offers all the performance advantages of the clinically proven and highly utilized PEEK-OPTIMATM Natural, with one unique difference, it allows for tailored radiolucency that can be optimized for application-specific image guidance and post-operative healing assessment requirements.
To accommodate a particular application and achieve optimal artifact-free visibility with X-ray, CT or MRI imaging techniques.
Stiffness Similar to Bone
With a bone-like modulus1, PEEK-OPTIMA Image Contrast helps minimize stress shielding and stimulate bone healing.
Strong and Durable
PEEK-OPTIMA Image Contrast is highly resistant to creep and fatigue2, and can withstand repeated sterilizations without degradation3
