radiography test phantom / whole body
Type of calibration:
Area of the body:
Permit unlimited repetition of most viewspatients cannot be used for this
Demonstrate effects of changing technical factors
Provide valid feedback to evaluate trainee performance
Because the same phantom can be used year after year, performance norms can be derived to guide training procedures
Soft-tissue molds and skeleton molds are matched for anatomic fidelity.
RSD skeletons meet radiation interaction properties of both cortical bone and spongiosa as standardized by the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements.
many cadaveric human skeletonsespecially when dried out for their preparation.
An anatomically and radiologically correct female
Small size and low weight simplify positioning
Can be positioned for most views
Permits evaluation of student performance
Organs accept contrast media
Opaque or transparent
