Breast Phantoms

Breast Phantoms for Mammography and Breast Tomosynthesis

Breast phantoms with adipose and glandular tissue

Realistic simulation of breast imaging

This breast phantom was designed to simulate breast imaging in mammography and breast tomosynthesis. It represents a compressed breast of 4 cm thickness that can be placed under the compression paddle.
This phantom provides a realistic simulation of breast imaging. It was developed for testing and optimizing dose and image quality and for training of medical and technical staff.

Adipose and glandular tissue equivalency

The phantom is manufactured from virtual data (1, 2) containing adipose and glandular tissue. The models are handmade unique piece, which can differ slightly in size and design. The phantom can be provided as one-piece anthropomorphic phantom or in a sectional design. Dosimeter openings and pathologic features can be included upon request.
