AN OPTIMAL TRAINING DEVICE FOR ULTRASOUND-GUIDED PROCEDURES
Designed for Training and Experimentation
The CIRS Ultrasound Needle Breast Biopsy Phantom with Amorphous Lesions was designed for ultrasound-guided needle biopsy training and experimentation. The non-spherical shape of embedded targets enable practice with 2D, 3D and 4D image acquisition.
The phantom accurately mimics the ultrasonic characteristics of tissues found in the average human breast. The size and shape simulates that of a patient’s breast in the supine position. Within each phantom, there are six cystic masses and six dense masses, randomly positioned. A special holding tray facilitates proper hand position during training procedures.
Featuring Self-Sealing Zerdine® Material
Because the phantom is constructed of a self-healing formulation of Zerdine, it allows multiple biopsy insertions with minimal needling tracking. Needle tracks typically disappear within minutes of needle removal. Each cystic mass may be aspirated once and each dense mass may be biopsied multiple times.
