Micromouse & Water Filled Mouse Phantoms

M090 091 092 Micromouse & Water Filled Mouse Phantoms - CIRS

Micro-CT systems deliver precise, accurate and high-resolution measurements. The field of view of these systems requires appropriately scaled QA phantoms.

The CIRS Model 090 MicroMouseTM and Model 091 Water-Filled Mouse Phantoms provide tools for quantifying calcium and bone density with respect to X-ray attenuation and absorption properties. Hydroxyapatite (HA), the principal constituent of teeth and bones within mammals, is the most appropriate reference for mineral density evaluations. CIRS blends HA in a soft-tissue equivalent, polymer background to provide references which can range in HA loading between 0 mg/cc and 750 mg/cc.
Hydroxyapatite grain size and homogeneity of the rods are optimized for use in Micro-CT.
Both the solid MicroMouse Phantom and the Water-Filled
Mouse phantom contain 11 rods of varying mineral loading and dimension. They can be used to evaluate Micro-CT scanners as you would standard whole body scanners. The targets are suitable for determining contrast detectability and estimating low-contrast resolution. In the MicroMouse Phantom the rods are embedded in soft tissue equivalent epoxy material that is of the size and shape of a small rodent.
  • 25 mg/cc - 750 mg/cc HA targets
  • Lung, Muscle and Adipose
  • Optimal for Micro-CT
  • Solid or Liquid Filled
  • Individual rods in varying compositions and diameters
The Water-Filled Mouse Phantom contains the 11 rods in a water-tight, polycarbonate housing which is very durable and resistant to many chemicals. The Model 091 housing can easily be filled with a variety of liquids to vary the contrast between the rods and the surrounding liquid.

The 11 Micro-CT rods used in Model 090 and 091 are also available to purchase separately as the Model 092, along with other length, diameter, and HA loading options.
