Micro-CT systems promise to deliver precise and accurate high-resolution measurements. The field of view of these systems requires appropriately scaled QA phantoms.

Provide tools for quantifying calcium and bone density with respect to X-ray attenuation and absorption properties. Hydroxyapatite (HA), the principal constituent of teeth and bones within mammals, is the most appropriate reference for mineral density evaluations. CIRS blends HA in a soft-tissue equivalent, polymer background to provide references which can range in HA loading between 0 mg/cc and 750 mg/cc. Hydroxyapatite grain size and homogeneity of the rods are optimized for use in Micro-CT.

Contain 11 rods of varying mineral loading and dimension. It can be used to evaluate Micro-CT scanners as you would standard whole body scanners. The targets are suitable for determining contrast detectability and estimating low-contrast resolution.

In the MicroMouse Phantom the rods are embedded in soft tissue equivalent material that is of the size and shape of a small rodent.
