Types of Needle Walls and Bevels
The Thin Wall needle is thinner than a Regular Wall needle. The inner diameter is bigger without any increase in the outside diameter. For example, a 21 G Thin Wall needle has the same outside diameter as a 21 G Regular Wall, but has the same inner diameter as a 20 G needle. Thin Wall allows the same flow volume as a Regular Wall needle one gauge larger.
