SPoRTTM Sectional Pediatric Radiography Trainer
Available with common pediatric fractures and flexed appendages
An ideal addition to any imaging department or Radiologic Technology training program, the CIRS Model 715 Series can assist in the monitoring, training and improvement of parameters and protocols common to most pediatric imaging procedures.
SPoRTTM is designed to aid teaching and improvement of patient positioning, collimation and anatomical comprehension and it’s wide range of features facilitate effective instruction of safe, high quality, pediatric imaging.
The phantom represents a typical 5-year old in both size and structure, making it portable and easy to position. The full body with head, arms and legs measures 110 cm (43 in) tall and weighs 20 kg (44 lb). The series consists of six sectional phantoms available separately or as a complete set.
Right extremities are available in extended or flexed configurations. Left arm and leg are available with or without embedded fractures. The fracture versions contain the most common pediatric fracture types, including buckle fracture to tibia and common fracture to fibula; fracture
to first metatarsal; radius fracture with open reduction and hardware and a common fracture to second intermediate phalange.
Components are made from propriety urethane and epoxy materials that mimic X-ray attenuation properties of human tissues for both diagnostic and therapy energy ranges (50 keV – 25 MeV). The materials are durable, impact resistant and suitable for continuous handling. Transparent soft tissue facilitates visual instruction of anatomical landmarks.
SPoRT(tm) can be used in film radiography, CR, DR and Computed Tomography.
- Facilitates hands on training and feedback in an exciting and memorable way
