CT bone densitometry and calibrated calcium scoring are poised for change with the introduction of new calibration methods. Image Analysis has sold more QCT Calibration Phantoms than anyone and continues to lead with innovations in CT calibration with a new, patented design.
The INTableTM Calibration Pad is intended to replace existing CT couch pads and to remain in place on the CT scanner. The small cross sectional samples do not interfere with other CT exams. Simultaneous phantom calibration is available on all CT slices and all CT scans. The small (round) samples virtually eliminate streak artifacts, scatter, beam hardening, and the increased dose and noise of the older, larger QCT Calibration phantoms. The hassles of phantom and patient positioning and misalignments of the larger "on the table, off the table" phantoms are eliminated.
With the new Image Analysis INTableTM Calibration pad, place it and forget it. The technologist need no longer be concerned with phantoms. Any scan, any time, any patient is available for BMD or calibrated Calcium Scoring now or in the future.
