radiation therapy test phantom / general purpose
Type of calibration:
for radiation therapy
Area of the body:
The CIRS Model 002H5 IMRT Phantom for Film and Ion chamber Dosimetry is designed to address the complex issues surrounding commissioning and comparison of treatment planning systems while providing a simple yet reliable method for verification of individual patient plans and delivery.
The 002H5 is homogeneous and elliptical in shape. It properly represents human anatomy in size and proportion. It measures 30 cm long x 30 cm wide x 20 cm thick (PA). 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.
Water equivalent interchangeable rod inserts accommodate ionization chambers allowing for point dose measurements in multiple planes within the phantom.* The phantom also supports radiographic or GafChromic® film at mid-plane in the phantom for analysis of dose distributions. Additional inserts are available to support a variety of other detectors including TLD’s, MOSFET, and diodes.
Handling, assembly and proper orientation of the phantom is made easy with the use of a unique alignment base and holding device. The surfaces of the phantom are etched for ease of laser alignment, and CT markers ensure accurate film to plan registration.*
