Document relationship between CT number and tissue electron density
Materials: Water and Tissue Equivalent Epoxy
Overall Dimensions: 13" x 2" x 10.6"
48 Month Warranty
Country of Origin: United States of America
Because CT scans are used to correct for tissue inhomogeneities in radiotherapy treatment planning, it is important to obtain a precise relationship between CT number (in Housfield units) and electron densities. Electron Density Phantom enables precise correlation of CT data to electron density of various tissues.
Consists of nested disks made from Plastic Water®. This enables both head and abdomen configurations. Eight different tissue equivalent inserts can be positioned at 17 different locations within the scan field. Included is a syringe insert that can be filled with any fluid or solid material. Special marker inserts enable quick assessment of the CT scanner's distance measurement accuracy. Plugs measure 30mm in diameter and are 50mm in length.
Physicists performing treatment planning need accurate tools to evaluate CT scan data, correct for inhomogeneities and to document the relationship between CT number and tissue density.
Includes: One (1) Electron Density Phantom, Carry Case, and User Guide
