Take-Apart CT PIXY with NO Fill Ports item #RS-107CT includes:
Standard Organs: Stomach, Gall Bladder, Urinary Bladder, Right and Left Kidneys, Rectum, Sigmoid Flexor
Additional Organs: Lungs, Heart, Liver, Ureters, Large Intestine, Circle of Willis, Esophagus
ANTHROPOMORPHIC TRAINING & TEACHING PHANTOM
Phantom disassembles into 9 parts
Ideal substitute for teaching and training radiological technologists
Small size and low weight simplify positioning
Unlimited repetition of most views for which patients cannot be used
Provides valid feedback to evaluate trainee performance
Designed to image any clinical view (AP, oblique, lateral, frog legs, etc.)
Take-Apart CT Pixy is an anatomically and radiologically correct female designed specifically for training radiologic technologists. At 5' 1" (156 cm) weighing 105 lbs (48 kg), Take-Apart CT Pixy is a repeatable, convenient substitute for patients and virtually indestructible.
Built with soft-tissue mold and skeleton molds that are matched for anatomic fidelity, Take-Apart CT Pixy permits unlimited exposures, demonstrates the effects of changing technical factors, and allows for evaluation of student performance. Students have no difficulty in maneuvering Take-Part CT Pixy into most desired positions as the phantom is built to tolerate trainee errors.
Teaching & training of patient positioning
Modalities: CT, X-Ray, Fluoroscopy
Shoulders have ball and socket joints
Elbows and knees flex 90° to 100°
A "frog position" is possible at the hips
Right hand is molded with fingers positioned for an AP view
Left hand is in an oblique-lateral position
Feet are in natural position
Take-Apart CT Pixy is used to demonstrate anatomy and evaluate positioning and imaging techniques, including kVp, mAs, contrast, optical density, digital processing, OFD and TFD. Made of tissue-equivalent materials and life-like articulations, Take-Apart CT Pixy is more realistic than a cadaveric skeleton with radiographs that are optically equivalent in density and contrast to human patients.
C1, C2, C6, and C7 were converted to mechanical nylon joints because educators in the field prefer full positioning capabilities for the head. This design permits the remaining neck vertebrae to be fixed in a normal position, while assuring a full range of head motion.
The skull of Take-Apart CT Pixy has frontal and sphenoidal sinuses, ethmoidal and mastoid air cells, and the auditory ossicles. Bone sutures are radiographically visible.
Take-Apart CT Pixy lungs are molded of tissue-equivalent foam with the mass density of inflated human lungs (0.30 g/cc). They are connected to the oro-nasal cavity by the stem bronchi and trachea. The oro-nasal pharynx is filled with a nearly air-equivalent foam.

About this Brand
After developing the first anthropomorphic test dummy for the aviation industry in the late 1940's, the RSD team directed its impactful R & D to revolutionize healthcare diagnostic imaging with anthropomorphic phantoms. RSD diagnostic imaging phantoms are routinely used to perform quality control on imaging equipment and to train healthcare professionals in best practices. The company has become the leading supplier of QC and educational solutions for medical diagnostics and radiation therapy, featuring products such as anthropomorphic phantoms and dosimetry verification phantoms.
