The Model 555 Set consists of two phantoms, the CIRS Model 055 3D Ultrasound Calibration Phantom and 055A 3D Wire Test Object, as described in the AIUM publication “Standard Methods for Calibration of 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional Spatial Measurement Capabilities of Pulse Echo Ultrasound Imaging Systems”. These phantoms were designed to evaluate measurements taken on ultrasound systems using newer spatial encoding algorithms. This is especially important for the 3-D and 4-D ultrasound systems currently on the market.
Both phantoms are manufactured from the water-based polymer developed by CIRS called Zerdine® and housed in rugged ABS containers that minimize desiccation. The background is calibrated to mimic the ultrasound characteristics of human liver tissue. Unlike other phantom materials Zerdine is not damaged by changes in temperature.
