radiation therapy test phantom / MRI / torso
Type of calibration:
for radiation therapy, MRI
Area of the body:
The CIRS MRI-LINAC Dynamic Phantom is designed for end-to-end commissioning, machine QA for hybrid MRI-LINAC Radiation Therapy systems, and verification of gated and adaptive treatment plans.
The Model 008M provides a means to assess MRI image quality, and to test tumor localization and motion-capturing devices. The phantom can be used to acquire moving or static target images for treatment planning and verification of gated or adaptive treatment delivery.
The phantom body, moving rod with target and extended rigid shaft connection are MRI-safe with 1.5T magnets. Motors and motion controller electronics are located at a safe distance from the magnet to ensure MRI image quality. The MRI-LINAC Dynamic Phantom utilizes CIRS Motion Control Software to provide precise, repeatable 3D target motion.
The phantom body approximates an average human body in size and shape. It is comprised of a plastic shell with a cylindrical thru hole to accommodate a moving rod with simulated target. The shell is filled with proprietary MRI signal-generating gel that allows for quick and easy phantom set-up without liquid motion artifacts. The phantom body is suspended on non-magnetic rails that allow for coil positioning and phantom registration to the couch.
