Table Pads: Finding the Right X-Ray Pad for Your Needs

If you're looking for a cost-effective way to improve patient comfort and stability while also adding a way to protect tables with increasing infection control during imaging procedures, a heavy duty table pad, or x-ray pad, is an important addition to your MRI or imaging office. 


Imaging table pads are a low-cost upgrade to a cold, hard imaging table which may not offer the best patient experience during an imaging procedure. They fit tables of most sizes and can also improve a stretcher that is still operational but fit perfectly to provide some additional enhancement. Other than the cushioning x ray pads provide, they're easy to clean with a mild cleaner or germicide so you better control infection from the same product.


The type of x-ray pad required depends on the type and duration of the procedure, and the kind of patient. One feature for consideration is the thickness. Standard imaging table pads are manufactured in either 1" thick comfort foam for X-ray imaging and 2" thick high-density foam for longer procedures where the risk of pressure sores is greater. 


Another feature is sizing. Pads are made in either standard 72"x23.25"x1" or standard plus 80"x30"x1" Finally, the type of padding is important. You can either choose between a firm or comfort foam for the inside of the pad. A more premium model might offer memory foam as well. 


Table pad fabrics vary but most commonly come in black vinyl or blue vinyl with the additional option for black techno-tuff vinyl. Vinyl pads are radiolucent and latex-free, and the vinyl top is easy to clean and heat resistant to prevent types of potential heat damage. Most x ray pads also can come either with and without brass grommets for hanging storage like on a wall mounted storage rack
