Alderson angiographic head phantoms bridge the gap between physical and anatomical information requirements. Molded in tissue equivalent material, an accurate male skull contains a 3-dimensional, high-contrast vascular simulation to facilitate correlation of the radiologist's subjective evaluation of angiographic image quality with actual measurements of resolution and contrast under the same exposure conditions.
Provides a "dry run" to completely check out angiographic equipment and ensure that is operating satisfactorily in all significant details before subjecting patients to radiological procedures. If the imaging system malfunctions, the phantom also plays a critically important role in isolating and verifying correction of the problems. It confines the variables to components and technique and is an invaluable service and teaching tool.Features and Benefits
