Anthropomorphic Training/Teaching Phantom, Dis-Assembles Into 9 Parts.
TAKE-APART PIXY is used to demonstrate anatomy as well as evaluate positioning and imaging techniques, including kVp, mAs, contrast, optical density, OFD and TFD. Radiographs of PIXY are optically equivalent to density and contrast to human patients.
TAKE-APART PIXY allows unlimited exposures and tolerates trainee errors, permits evaluation of student performance.
An anatomically and radiologically correct female
Small size and low weight simplify positioning
Can be positioned for most views
Permits evaluation of student performance
Models with/without organs accept contrast media
Opaque or transparent
Length: 5 ft 1 in
Weight: 105 lbs
TAKE-APART PIXY’S shoulders have ball and socket joints. Elbows and knees flex 90° to 100°. A "frog position" is possible at the hips. The right hand is molded with fingers positioned for an AP view. The left hand is positioned in oblique-lateral position.
The feet are in natural position. 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.
TAKE-APART PIXY may be ordered with or without: abdominal and pelvic organs: stomach, gall bladder, urinary bladder, kidneys, rectum, and sigmoid flexure. These are air-filled, but accept water or contrast media and can be easilflushed after use. Custom fractures and custom pathologies are optional at additional cost.
The skull of PIXY has frontal and sphenoidal sinuses, ethmoidal and mastoid air cells and the auditory ossicles. Bone sutures are radiographically visible.
Soft tissues are available in opaque or transparent tissue-equivalent materials. The transparent PIXY has visible organs and skeleton.
Standard 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.
All PIXY Phantoms Feature:
Realistic Supine, Lateral, and Oblique Positioning
Shoulders Rotate 360 Degrees and Open 180 Degrees Sideways
Elbows and Knees Bend 90 Degrees
Full Head Rotation
Limbs and Head are Detachable at Joints
Segmented Joints Allow for Approximate Human Articulation and Flexibility
Organs (includes with ONLY certain models) Accept Contrast Media
