Static Adult Human Head Phantom is designed to be suitable for medical imaging of foreign static objects such as small bone pieces, shrapnel, bullets and any other metal or non-metal targets. The phantom is designed based on an average anatomy of a human male head and it is made out of realistic soft and hard tissue mimicking materials suitable for Ultrasound, MRI and CT applications.
The phantom consists of following components:
- Anatomically correct realistic skull
- Anatomically correct brain phantom
- Set of small static objects (bone and metal pieces with the following diameters: 0.5mm, 1mm, 2mm, and 3mm)
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.
