Multi-Modality Pelvic Phantom

Model 048A

The Multi-Modality Male Pelvic Phantom was designed for realistic abdominal and transrectal ultrasound scanning of the bladder and prostate. The phantom includes pelvic bones, anechoic bladder, prostate, urethra, seminal vesicles and rectum enclosed in a pelvic-shaped plastic housing with a Z-SkinTM membrane. The self-healing qualities of Z-Skin make this design ideal for the demonstration of biopsies and other image-guided procedures.

Our phantom is made from materials that can be imaged under ultrasound, MRI and CT making it useful for applications that require multiple modalities such as radiation treatment planning. The phantom is provided with certified prostate and bladder volumes to enable assessment of volumetric measurement accuracy. Modifications are available such as permanently embedded brachytherapy “dummy” seeds or gold fiducial markers for demonstration of target visualization.

Each phantom is sold with a certificate of compliance. 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. CIRS can also offer value added services such as phantom specific CMM, attachment of customer specific registration devices and inclusion of special point markers.

  • Images under ultrasound, MRI and CT
  • Assess volumetric measurement accuracy on prostate and bladder
  • Demonstrate biopsy techniques and other image-guided procedures
