Small Parts Ultrasound Phantom

Model 050
Quality Assurance for Small Parts Ultrasonic Imaging
  • Detachable water wells allow for testing curvilinear and endocavity probes
  • Ensure over ten years of reliable use through reinspection and repair services

Includes best in industry four-year warranty

The CIRS Small Parts Ultrasound Phantom features a compact design ideal for high-resolution imaging systems with limited depth of penetration.

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.

Our 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.
