Radiopaque Solutions, Inc.  has been developing technologies for the medical device industry for the past 25 years.  These bands are produced to exacting standards and are in use around the world for medical device applications.
Radiopaque Marker bands heat formed into wall of urethane catheter
Urethane radiopaque bands can be heat formed and bonded into the wall of a polymer catheter.  Bands are made from urethane and tungsten.  They can be made from .015" to 1" in diameter.  Wall thicknesses as thin as .002" are possible based on the application.

The bands in this image are .078" diameter.
Radiograph of the assembled bands.
This is a micrograph of the band - catheter tube interface after heat forming.  The forming can be accomplished by placing heat shrink tubing over the band, heating to 205 degrees Celsius, and then removing the heat shrink tube after cooling.  Alternatively they may also be RF or heat formed using glass tooling.
