RSD Female ART Thorax Phantom – Sections 10-23


In stock

SKU: ART-311X Categories: ,

ART phantoms are molded of tissue-equivalent material, they are designed within highly sophisticated technological constraints and follow ICRU-44 standards. They are also designed for accuracy and ease of use.

Features and Benefits

  • Anatomy
    • The Female ART represents a 155 cm (5 ft. 1 in.) tall, 50 kg (110 lb.) female.
    • The ART phantom is transected-horizontally into 2.5 cm thick slices.
    • Each slice has holes which are plugged with bone-equivalent, soft-tissue-equivalent or lung tissue equivalent pins which can be replaced by TLD holder pins.
    • Soft-tissue-equivalent coatings produce slices with glass smooth interfaces.
    • These coatings are cut away over the air spaces of the oronasal pharynges, trachea and stem bronchi.
    • Dosimetry holes are drilled in grids 3cm x3 cm or 1.5cm x 1.5cm in 5 and 7 mm diameters.
  • Breast Attachments
    • They can be sliced in frontal planes (drilled or undrilled for film dosimetry).
    • Slices can receive any of the pins listed below.
    • Breasts of male and female ART phantoms are contoured to blend realistically with the thoraxes.
    • They are attached to the thorax with nylon screws.
    • The male chest with breasts attached serves as a large female.
  • Materials
    • Soft Tissues
      • There are unlimited, small variations in density and absorption throughout the human body.
      • Phantom soft tissue is closely controlled to have the average density of these tissues.
    • Skeletons
      • RSD skeletons are highly-detailed polymer moldings which reproduce the shape, mass density and attenuation coefficients of cortical bone and spongiosa.
      • They allow continuous production of phantoms, instead of the sporadic production required by the limited availability, variable size and uncertain chemical composition of human skeletons.
      • These problems, plus loss of marrows in dried natural skeletons, make RSD skeletons superior to ‘real bone’.
      • Molds for the RSD cortical bone and spongiosa were made from human skeletons consistent with the sizes of the soft tissue molds.
      • RSD skeletons conform closely to the standards established by the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU Report No. 44), mass density is reduced slightly to take into account a small decrease in calcium content for older patients.
    • Lungs
      • Lungs are molded from syntactic foam, with a specific gravity of 0.30 g/cc.
  • Assembly
    • ART phantom slices are held between aluminum plates by nylon tie rods.
    • Knobs at the end of the rods clamp the slices tightly in proper alignment.
    • The external assembly facilitates film dosimetry, while the internal assembly is used generally with TLDs or ionchamber dosimetry.
