Breast Phantoms for Mammography and Breast Tomosynthesis
Breast phantoms with adipose and glandular tissue
Realistic simulation of breast imaging
The breast phantom was designed to simulate breast imaging in mammography and breast tomosynthesis. It represents a compressed breast of 3.6 cm thickness that can be placed under the compression paddle.
The phantom was developed for testing and optimizing dose and image quality and for training of medical and technical staff.
Adipose and glandular tissue equivalency
The phantoms are manufactured from virtual data (1, 2) containing adipose and glandular tissue. Minor variations in size and design can occur.
The phantom can be provided as one-piece anthropomorphic phantom or in a sectional design of four slabs of 0.9 cm thickness. Microcalcification test patterns can be provided, pathologies can be included upon request.
