The phantom is designed based on an average human male head and it is made out of realistic tissue mimicking materials suitable for both Ultrasound and MRI applications.The phantom consists of following components:
- Anatomically correct realistic skull
- Anatomically correct brain phantom
- Complex blood vessel structure with incorporated Circle of Willis
- One bifurcation
- One stenosis
- Two aneurysms.
Upon special request, the phantom features and the properties of the tissue mimicking materials can be customized based on the requirements of any particular project.
