|Ludlum Acrylic Modular X-ray Attenuation Phantom.|
The Acrylic Modular X-ray Phantom - L-760 - is made up of a series of acrylic and aluminum plates that provide
the various attenuation characteristics of various body part thicknesses. The variation in the number of acrylic plates
and/or spacers simulate either a standard chest, abdomen, skull or extremity.|
The acrylic phantoms conform to AAPM recommendations noted in report # 31 (Standardized Methods for Measuring Diagnostic X-ray Exposure); and also those noted in Report #60 (Instrumentation Requirements for Diagnostic Radiological Physicists).
The Phantom set is also useful for making exposure technique charts for commonly used projections. The latter has been a long standing requirement of the JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations).
These phantoms are ideal for adjusting Automatic Exposure Controls and Automatic Brightness Controls on Diagnostic and Fluoroscopic Systems.
The Modular Phantom contains the following components:
Five Acrylic Sheets: 25cm x 25cm x 2.54 cm thick
One Acrylic Sheet : 25cm x 25cm x 5.08 cm thick
One Aluminum Sheet : 25cm x 25cm x 1mm thick
One Aluminum Sheet : 25cm x 25cm x 2mm thick
One Aluminum Sheet : 7cm x 25cm x 4.5mm thick
Spacers for a 5.08 cm air gap
