|German term or phrase: röntgenopak|
|This word appears to be used as an adjective in the following sentence:|
"Die digitale Vermessung des vertikalen periimplantären Knochenabbaus und der horizontalen Reduktion des Limbus alveolaris erfolgte unter Zugrundlegen des anhand der Vermessung der röntgenopaken Implantate berechneten Vergrößerungsfaktors."
I am aware that Röntgeneologie is radiology, so I figure that this most mysterious word has something to do with X-rays. But I have never seen röntgenopak before, and not only have none of the dictionaries ever heard of it, all the search engines I try draw a blank as well! But if anyone here has a clue what it might be, I sure would be grateful for your help!
You got it! Isn't it nice when you see that light bulb over your head lighting up? Below is an example each for the use of it.

Thank you very much for that confirmation, and yes, it sure is a great feeling when the "cranial light bulb" flashes.

By George, I think I've got it!
I think I may have solved my own query! It occurred to me that the "opak" might be "opaque", and I've now discovered that in radiology, there is a term, "radio-opaque"! So that's probably what it is! But if anyone else can provide confirmation, that would be appreciated.
