Prostate Training Phantom
Model 070S & 070L

Prostate Training Phantom - Model 070S & 070L - Products - CIRS

The ideal training device for Image-guided procedures

The Model 070S and 070L is a realistic and durable prostate training phantom for both diagnostic and interventional procedures.

Enhanced realism has been achieved with a Zerdine® gel formulation that better simulates the ultrasound contrast between the prostate and background tissue.  The gel formulations provide CT, MR and elastography contrast for multi-modality imaging. CIRS’ proprietary Z-Skin™ formulation more accurately simulates the rectal wall, providing a more realistic scanning environment.

Z-Skin™ provides perineal access for interventional procedures, and closes up on itself after it is punctured so that the Zerdine® gel inside the phantom is not exposed to air during scanning.  Minimal air exposure better protects the gel from drying out, thus increasing the phantom’s useful life.  In addition, Z-Skin is extremely stretchable and will protect the gel inside the phantom from tearing when the rectal probe is manipulated at severe angles. The phantom accommodates both end-fire and side-fire ultrasound transducers. Zerdine® is specially formulated to minimize tearing when punctured, providing a self-healing capability that dramatically extends the life of the phantom during interventional procedures. 

The phantom is available in two configurations: one with embedded lesions (Model 070L), and one without embedded lesions (Model 070S). For users interested in image fusion studies, the phantom can be purchased as a kit to include a serial-number specific CT DICOM Data set for reference.
