The Model 527 rubber-based tissue mimicking phantom is designed to test the ability of color Doppler flow imaging systems to discriminate the direction of flow in small, closely spaced vessels at varying depths.
Our phantom contains four pairs of 2 mm flow-channels. The edge-to-edge spacing between each pair of flow- channels progressively increases from 1 mm to 4 mm. If greater distances are desired, a combination of two flow-channel pairs can be used. Two fixed-angle scan surfaces of 18° and 56° maintain the sound beam and the Doppler Test Fluid flowing through the phantom. These angles permit continuous scanning at depths ranging from 3 to 17 cm. All ATS urethane phantoms are guaranteed for the useful life of the phantom, defined as 10 years.
Key Tests with Model ATS 527:
- Directional Discrimination
- Flow Velocity
- Flow Location
- Sensitivity at varying depths
- Maximum Penetration
