The MicroMouse Phantom provides tools for quantifying calcium and bone density with respect to X-ray attenuation and absorption properties. Hydroxyapatite (HA), the principal constituent of teeth and bones within mammals, is the most appropriate reference for mineral density evaluations. CIRS blends HA in a soft-tissue equivalent, polymer background to provide references which can range in HA loading between 0 mg/cc and 750 mg/cc. Hydroxyapatite grain size and homogeneity of the rods are optimized for use in Micro-CT.

Features and Benefits
- Contains 11 rods of varying mineral loading and dimension - used to evaluate Micro-CT scanners as you would standard whole body scanners.
- Targets are suitable for determining contrast detectability and estimating low-contrast resolution.
- Rods are embedded in soft tissue equivalent material that is of the size and shape of a small rodent.
