Description

Adult Heart Phantom is a realistic simulator of a healthy-adult human heart. The phantom is anatomically correct & compatible with ultrasound, X-RAT/CT, and MRI. This product has a wide range of applications as it also has the potential to support beating functionality and generate life-like motions. Some of its uses and applications include transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiograms, ultrasound-navigated endoscopies, catheter insertion under ultrasound probes, and other cardio-based research & development studies.

True Phantom Solutions designs and creates bio-medical phantoms that are ultrasound, MRI, and CT compatible. We use patented synthetic material to create life-like phantoms that mimic the acoustical, physical, and mechanical properties of real biological tissues. Using 3D printing technology and synthetic material, the phantoms are made to be an exact model of anatomical structures. The phantoms are fully customizable and able to suit any bio-medical project.

Upon special request, the geometry and dimensions of the feature and its properties can be customized based on the requirements of any particular project.

The picture represents the phantom/model without a water tank. The water tank helps researchers to mount the heart and obtain an enhanced view of the internal structures.
