- RADIOLUCENT: Anything (material) that permits the penetration and passage of X-rays or other forms of radiation.
- RADIOPAQUE: Anything (material) that blocks the penetration of X-rays.
- The fabrics and acrylic adhesives (“glue”) used by Sound Horse Technologies in Series I, II & III shoes permit the penetration of X-rays and are, therefore, radiolucent.
- With Sound Horse fabric & acrylic glue used to attach the cuff to the hoof, the assembly can be left in place when obtaining radiographs of the equine foot as the cuff and glue combined are evident as an easily distinguishable, minimally dense band of material superimposed on the hoof wall. The bony detail beneath is easily evaluated.
