Radiopaque spacer

  1. Hi....I have a qusetion.........what is the difference between a bone dowel and a radiopaque spacer?I ask because it appears my neurosurgeon utilized a radiopaque spacer in my anterior cervical fusion instead of an allograft bone.What is a radiopaque spacer....is it like a polymer disc?
