Product Description

Designed for compliance with AIUM Standards

Designed to evaluate measurements taken on ultrasound systems using newer spatial encoding algorithms. This is especially important for the 3-D and 4-D ultrasound systems currently on the market.

Manufactured from the water-based polymer developed by CIRS called Zerdine®(1) and housed in rugged ABS containers that minimize desiccation. The background is calibrated to mimic the ultrasound characteristics of human liver tissue. Unlike other phantom materials Zerdine® is not damaged by changes in temperature.

Model 055A 3D Wire Test Object is a wire-target phantom. In 2-D, the wires can be used to trace imaginary elliptical or rectangular shapes while, in 3D-mode, the same wire targets can trace out elliptical and/or rectangular rods. These are used to measure perimeters, volumes and surface areas. the phantom also be used to determine image uniformity and depth of penetration.

The phantoms come with a rugged carrying case a copy of the above referenced AIUM publication as a user's guide and handling instructions.
