radiation therapy test phantom / general purpose
Type of calibration:
for radiation therapy
Area of the body:
CIRS offers a variety of IMRT phantoms to match the most common IMRT treatment areas such as prostate, head and neck, breast and lung.
The phantom is constructed of proprietary tissue equivalent epoxy materials. Linear attenuations of the simulated tissues are within 1% of actual attenuation for bone and water from 50 keV to 15 MeV.These unique materials eliminate the need for correction factors, thus improving accuracy and saving time. The phantom simulates the patient through the entire process from CT data acquisition and planning to delivery and dose verification.
The Model 002H9K was designed in collaboration with David D. Loshek PhD. With the H9K, choose any point dose location within a circular area with diameter of 11.2 cm by simply adjusting the two rotating cylinders. Lung and bone equivalent rods can be positioned at any location within the circular area for assessment of heterogeneity correction. Remove the center cylinder from the phantom body to simulate head and neck set-ups.
