Pro-CT MINI

A compact CT image quality testing solution

Inquire About this Product

The Pro-CT MINI phantom is a compact CT image quality testing solution. When connected with Pro-CT Dose it may be used for carrying out acceptance and constancy tests of computed tomography systems according to IEC 61223-3-5 and the AAPM (American Association of Physicists in Medicine) guidelines. This phantom consists of a module 16 cm in diameter with positioning aids and recesses for test modules.

When used Pro-CT Dose the phantom can be used to do the following tests:

  • geometric distortion

  • CT number (HU) measurement

  • noise / uniformity

  • artefacts

  • MTF

  • spatial resolution

  • contrast resolution

  • low contrast resolution

  • slice profile

  • alignment

  • linearity

  • beamwidth

Features

  • complies with:

    • IEC 61223-3-5

    • IEC 61223-2-6

    • AAPM guidelines

  • CE certified

  • the manual provides detailed guidelines for carrying out each test, results assessment and registration
