M010 & M010 Tissue Equivalent Phantom for Mammography - CIRS


Tissue Equivalent Phantom for Mammography

M010 & M010 Tissue Equivalent Phantom for Mammography - CIRS

Model 010 and 011A are tissue-equivalent, anthropomorphic phantoms designed to test performance of any mammographic system. Simulated calcifications, fibrous ducts, and tumor masses are embedded into the phantom as test objects.

Test objects range in size to allow system checks at varying levels of difficulty.

Model 010 phantoms are available in 4, 5 and 6 cm thickness with specified glandular tissue compositions. Model 011A is 4.5 cm thick and simulates an average glandular tissue composition. Both phantoms include a removable 0.5 cm adipose tissue-equivalent layer. CIRS resin material mimics the photon attenuation coefficients of a range of breast tissues. The average elemental composition of the mimicked tissue is based on the individual elemental compositions of adipose and glandular tissues as reported by Hammerstein. Attenuation coefficients are calculated by using the “mixture rule” and the Photon Mass Attenuation and Energy Absorption Coefficient Table of J.H. Hubbell.
