The CIRS Triple Modality 3D Abdominal Phantom is constructed of a self-healing formulation of Zerdine
®(1) that allows multiple biopsy insertions with minimal needle tracking, and is ideal for demonstrating image-guided navigation technologies.
Abdominal imaging is useful for diagnosing disease and monitoring treatments.
The Model 057A is representative of a small adult abdomen and can be imaged under CT, MR and ultrasound. This feature makes the phantom a useful tool for applications such as image fusion studies; imaging protocol developments; scan technique training; and system testing, validation and demonstration.
The Model 057A simulates the abdomen from approximately the thorax vertebrae (T9/T10) to the lumbar vertebrae (L2/L3) using simplified anthropomorphic geometry.
The materials provide contrast between the structures under CT, MR and ultrasound. The solid polymer background gel will not leak when punctured.
