A Refined Quality Assurance Tool for Today's Advanced Imaging Systems.
Proven simulation technology enables the use of tissue-equivalent, realistically-shaped phantoms for mammographic quality assurance.
Resin material mimics the photon attenuation coefficients of a range of breast tissues. Average elemental composition of the human breast being mimicked is based on the individual elemental composition of adipose and glandular tissue reported by Hammerstein.
Attenuation coefficients are calculated by using the "mixture rule" and the Photon Mass Attenuation and Energy Absorption Coefficient Table of J.H. Hubbell.
Contains targets that are engineered to test the threshold of the new generation of mammography machines. 4.5 cm thick and simulates an average glandular tissue composition.
Designed to test the performance of any mammographic system. Objects within the phantom simulate calcifications, fibrous calcifications in ducts and tumor masses. Test objects within the phantom range in size from those that should be visible on any system to objects that will be difficult to resolve on the best mammographic systems.
If you encounter a problem with this item, please contact Customer Service within 14 days of product receipt. If unable to correct the problem, a return material authorization (RMA) number will be issued. Restocking fees may apply at the discretion of the manufacturer. All returns should be packed in the original cases and/or packaging and must include any accessories, manuals and documentation that shipped with the product.
