The Original Yami Markers


Everyone knows that radiographs must be labeled to comply with state regulations. With whole-body radiography everyone also knows that an "L" in an abdominal image means left side down, and an "L" on an elbow radiograph means left elbow. Things are not so easy with skull radiography. The problem is how do you unambiguously label an oblique lateral image of the canine or feline skull? An "L" could mean that the left canine is the top tooth or the patient is in left lateral recumbency. YAMI dental markers will allow you to unambiguously label your skull radiographs.

As you can see in the picture, there is no question about how the skull was obliqued. The YAMI marker is placed on one tooth, "L" or "R" marker, and now there is no ambiguity as to which oblique was obtained.

YAMI markers are made in the USA, are 100% metal and extremely durable. One set of YAMI markers is all your practice will ever need. Each set of YAMI markers contains 8 pieces -  4 left and 4 right markers of the following sizes: extra small (for cats), small, medium and large. The caps are designed to slip over the canine teeth of both dogs and cats. A compete set of YAMI markers is $25.00 plus $3.95 for shipping and handling. CA residents add 8.75% sales tax.

YAMI markers should only be used on anesthetized animals.
