Small Parts Ultrasound PhantomModel 050
Quality Assurance for small parts ultrasonic imaging
The CIRS Small Parts Ultrasound Phantom features a compact design ideal for high-resolution imaging systems with a limited depth of penetration. The phantom allows for repeatable, qualitative assessment of uniformity, dead zone, depth of penetration, beam profile/focal zone/lateral response width, vertical distance measurement accuracy, axial resolution, lateral resolution, anechoic masses, high contrast masses, volumetric measurement accuracy, and focal lesion detectability.
Model 050 is made up of a proprietary tissue-simulating material called Zerdine® (1), which accurately simulates the ultrasound characteristics found in human liver.
A series of wire targets included in the Model 050 will appear as bright dots or lines on the ultrasound image. These targets are made from nylon with a diameter of 0.1 mm.
The phantom also contains two known volumes, a 10 mm combination cyst-like/hyperechoic mass and anechoic focal lesions embedded within the phantom. These masses are made from Zerdine with a different contrast and attenuation relative to the background material.
