Product Description

Designed to allow for assessment of volumetric measurement accuracy and 3D imaging.

The background is calibrated to mimic the ultrasound characteristics of human liver tissue. The phantom contains two calibrated volumetric test objects. The test objects and background material are made from Zerdine®, a patented, solid elastic material. Unlike other phantom materials Zerdine® is not damaged by changes in temperature.

Completely encased within a rugged ABS container which minimizes desiccation and facilitates scanning on two sides enabling 3D scanning. There are two embedded test objects: a small egg and a large egg. The targets are off centered within the background material.

Depending upon what side is scanned, the test objects are located at distances ranging from 2cm to 6cm from the scanning surface.

Model 055 3D Calibration Phantom is the tool for routine quality assurance of three dimensional ultrasound systems, software development, and research.
