Anthropomorphic Phantoms... Ideal Substitute Patients for Teaching/Training Radiologic Technologists
• Permit unlimited repetitions of most views…patients cannot be used for this…
• Demonstrate effects of changing technical factors…
• Provide valid feedback to evaluate trainee performance…
• Because the same phantom can be used year after year, performance norms can be derived to guide training procedures…
Human Skeletal Architecture Is Duplicated More Realistically with Capintec Skeletons Than With Cadaveric Skeletons
Soft-tissue molds and skeleton molds are matched for anatomic fidelity.
The skeletons meet radiation interaction properties of both cortical bone and spongiosa as standardized by the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements. Many cadaveric human skeletons do not… especially when dried out for their preparation.
Anthropomorphic Body Sections With Applications Throughout The Field of Radiography
Sectional phantoms, with the anatomic and radiofidelity of PIXY, are used widely in teaching/training, with many other applications. They represent an average male 5 ft. 9 in. tall (175cm) with a weight of 162 lbs (74kg). They are rugged, easily transported and shatter-proof.
Sectional phantoms do not replace simple geometric phantoms that are used to evaluate individual characteristics of an imaging system. They provide comprehensive evaluation of the imaging system and imaging techniques under realistic conditions. Typical applications are the same as PIXY.
