Would a transponder composed of this material show up on a scan?
No, and here is why: Transponders with polymer antennas are not injected into human beings. The transponders that can be implanted are low-frequency (LF) and encapsulated in glass. Antennas made of polymers need to be printed on flat sheets of plastic. It is impossible to inject a flat sheet into a human being—and even if it were, the body would interact with the polymer and quickly render the transponder inoperable (no pun intended).
