The Dynamic Breathing Phantom is a state-of-the-art industry standard for planning lung cancer radiation therapy. It is designed to simulate an average adult humanoid torso including lungs, ribcage/chest-wall bone, skin and sub-dermis. The material properties of soft tissues, organs, bones, and joints provide a faithful simulation of the physical form of a human thorax and its radiological image properties.
This unique phantom has a target within the lung equivalent lobe to simulate tumor motion inside the lung. The electro-pneumatic motion controller and easy to use phantom control software allows users to program different breathing patterns and breathing rates so that they can precisely plan the dose delivery to any patient.
RS-1500 Includes the Following:
The Dynamic Breathing Phantom (thoracic mannequin)
Electro-pneumatic motion controller
Target fixtures for imaging and radiation dosimetry
